WOOLWICH TERROR ATTACK: Local inspector reassures Saxilby community in video statement


Police Insp Simon Outen have made a video statement on the continued police presence in Saxilby.

It follows the search of a house in Hotchkin Avenue on Thursday 23rd May in connection with the suspected terrorist killing of soldier Lee Rigby on Wednesday.

It is thought that Muslim convert Michael Adebolajo - one of the suspects in the attack - was registered as living at the address in 2003.

Insp Outen reassured residents that the increased police presence would remain ‘for as long as necessary’ dependent on the needs of the community.

But he stressed that there was ‘no threat whatsoever’ to local residents.

He also warned people to be careful what they post on social media.

One Lincoln man has already been charged over allegedly posting offensive Facebook comments.

Benjamin Flatters, 22, of no fixed abode appeared at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court today (Saturday 25th May 2013) on a charge of posting malicious communications.
