POLICE in Cambridgeshire are thanking residents for remaining calm after untrue rumours of disorder in the county.
Extra patrols were carried out last night (Wednesday) and the county remained relatively quiet with no reports of disorder or damage to property.
Deputy Chief Constable John Feavyour, said: “Plans remain in place in response to disorders in London and other cities, however there is no information to suggest a threat in Cambridgeshire.
“Patrols were increased in the county and we are continuing to allocate extra resources.
“We are encouraging residents to continue going about their lives as usual and are working with our partners and community leaders to address any concerns.
“Anyone who uses the current national issues as an excuse to commit crime will feel the full force of the law.
“We would like to thank the community for their continued calm and support of officers working to keep the county safe.”
