Britain’s elite military and police teams joined forces in a combined exercise to give a glimpse of the sheer scale of the country’s biggest peacetime security operation yesterday.
Operation Woolwich Arsenal Pier saw the Royal Marines and Scotland Yard take command of the River Thames in a determined show of strength as part of a security exercise for the London Olympics.
The British muscle on show was designed to test the water for the joint operation, and to illustrate the country’s readiness against terrorism.
