Arrests low during Jubilee Thames Pageant in London

16:31 04 June 2012

Police made just 10 arrests during the Jubilee celebrations in London yesterday.

Met commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe said that despite one-and-a-half million people being out on the streets in London yesterday to see the royal flotilla, his officers arrested just 10 people for minor public order offences such as drunkenness.

A further 250,000 people were expected on the streets of London today to watch the concert outside Buckingham Palace, he said.

Speaking as he mingled with the crowds in the Mall, Mr Hogan-Howe said he hoped the rain held off for the rest of today (Monday).

He said: “We have had absolutely no problems at all yet. It seems to have gone really well. We had one and a half million people out yesterday and made just 10 arrests so that is not bad.

“We had some long hours yesterday and it was wet and cold but my officers made sure people got home safe.

“We just really hope the weather holds up and people can enjoy this unique concert in front of Buckingham Palace. Our main job is to keep people safe and make sure they can enjoy themselves.”
