England – Revealed: More Than 10,000 Riot Police From Across UK Are On Stand-By In Case No Deal Brexit Sparks Public Disorder…! (Photo)

More than 10,000 riot-trained police can be deployed within 24 hours if disorder breaks out over a no-deal Brexit, top officers say.

Some 1,000 will be available in the first hour – more than were mobilised during the 2011 London riots – and specialist teams such as dog handlers, armed police and search-trained officers, can be called upon.

So far 15 forces have placed restrictions on annual leave, and two have officially asked for mutual aid – Kent, which covers the port of Dover, and Hampshire, which covers Portsmouth.
