Diamond Jubilee 2012: Police chief praises public after just 10 arrests

POLICE have made just ten arrests during the Jubilee celebrations in London.

Met Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe said that despite one-and-a-half million people taking to the streets in London on Sunday to watch the royal flotilla, his officers arrested just ten people for minor public order offences such as drunkenness.

A further 250,000 people were expected to be out and about in London yesterday to watch the concert outside Buckingham Palace, he said.

Speaking as he mingled with the crowds in the Mall, Mr Hogan-Howe said: “We have had absolutely no problems at all yet. It seems to have gone really well. We had one and a half million people and made just ten arrests so that is not bad.”
