COUNTER-Terror cops introduced a massive operation in an attempt to ‘Secure the Border’ amid the Migrant Crisis that has seen a whopping 6,000 migrants enter the UK illegally, with more than 1,487 walking in via Britain’s front door this month alone.
A spokesman for Counter Terrorism Policing said: “We can confirm that a request was made on Tuesday by Counter Terrorism Policing nationally for enhanced security checks to be carried out at UK ports”
“This was in relation to ongoing operational activity and this requirement has since been stood down.”
“We would like to reassure the public that there is no threat to public safety in relation to this activity and thank all those affected for their cooperation and understanding.”
Counter Terror cops introduced enhanced checks following the biggest month on record with 1,487 migrants entering the UK illegally.
The checks in Dover are due to counter-terrorism measures with anti-Terror cops requesting for extra security checks at Ports.
Counter-Terror Police said: “We would like to reassure the public that there is no threat to public safety in relation to this activity and thank all those affected for their cooperation and understanding.”
“There is an on-going police operation at the Port of Dover checking vehicles and passengers. No further details on why this is being done. It’s causing long delays in the area.”
