Abbey Wood travellers site searched in weapons hunt

Police launched a major operation early this morning in south east London as they sought weapons in a number of sites.

Numerous police vehicles descended and a helicopter hovered above the Abbey Wood travellers site on Harrow Manorway after 5am this morning.

Police were also seen digging at sites on Southmere park in Thamesmead.

Yours truly passed the site during early afternoon where operations seemed far quieter compared to  the scene this morning when Harrow Manorway was closed as numerous police vans lined the area

Operations at Southmere park continue.


Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.
