Both I guess. But they were so delighted when they came in afterwards it was hard not to be pleased for them. A story which will be told and retold I think.
The Met says that since Operation Blunt 2 began in May 2008 there have been nearly 2,500 arrests, with 550 knives, 20 guns and 150 other weapons seized.
. . . Fitzgerald says this claim is not borne out by new Met figures broken down by borough which show a very mixed picture across London in the use of the powers: "The boroughs which have resisted politically driven pressures to take a gung-ho approach to using section 60 have been as successful in reducing knife crime, and often more so, than the boroughs where the police have been happy to let section 60 searches go through the roof."
