A number of police cars urgently sped to a street in Romford town centre this morning (Wednesday, November 20), after an officer mistakenly pressed an emergency alarm.
Two officers were attending an address in Victoria Road to make enquiries unrelated to the alleged stabbing that took place in Atlanta Boulevard on Tuesday, November 20.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed the emergency button was pressed in error by one of these officers, causing more police officers to respond as a matter of urgency.
An hour after this story was published the Recorder was told by another Metropolitan police spokesman that police attended an address in Station Parade just after 11am after being made aware of a domestic incident.
He said: “Officers requested additional units, and forced entry to the property.
“A man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of a public order offence.”
