Weapon sweeps in Bethnal Green


As you can see from the picture a 10 inch knife was found barely hidden on a sidewalk in undergrowth.

The knife is hard to see but the handler will know where it is and can retrieve it quickly.

The East London Advertiser reported on the story and shows how dangerous this knife is. If you can see such items in the undergrowth, hidden in bushes, grass or elsewhere please notify the police immediately.

A gun was also found in the Mile End Road by gardeners reports the ELA.
