Officers have tonight responded to reports of an unlicensed music event in #HammersmithandFulham.

Specially trained public order offences attended after police were met with hostility from attendees.

Seven officers have sustained injuries.…
DAC Laurence Taylor said: "“Officers have responded to residents complaining about a large gathering, noise, anti-social behaviour and violence.

“These gatherings are illegal and also pose a risk to public health."
“The violence shown towards officers this evening was totally unacceptable and we will not tolerate it in any form. Officers encountered bricks and other missiles being thrown at them."

A message to policing colleagues across the UK.

This message doesn’t come from the head @terrorismpolice;

An Assistant Commissioner @metpoliceuk;

Nor a representative of @PoliceChiefs;

It’s a personal message from me to policing colleagues across the UK...
I have worn the badge proudly for 28 years.

I also happen to be of mixed Indian and white British heritage, which means that I am the most senior BAME officer in the UK.
