Riot rumours are untrue, say police

POLICE are urging residents to remain calm amid untrue rumours of disorder across the county.

Cambridgeshire Police is receiving a number of calls regarding rumours of incidents across Peterborough and the rest of the county. Several false rumours are also circulating on social media sites.

There is no truth in these rumours and no incidents have been reported in Cambridgeshire.

Deputy Chief Constable John Feavyour said: “I would stress there have been no incidents of violence and disorder reported in the county. Businesses and residents should continue with their lives as usual.

“We are monitoring the situation in London and other parts of the country. However there is no information to suggest there is any threat to this county.

“I would urge people to not pass on these rumours via email, text or via social media.”
