Botched Anti-Terror Police Raid

This is the house that the police raided and shot a man in 2006.


On 2nd June 2006, anti-terrorism police raided this house and in making several arrests shot one of the occupants.

The bungled operation headed by MI5 was convinced that the informant had persuasive evidence that a group of men here were plotting to deploy a chemical device in the capital.

Following protests and tension across the capital after recent bomb attacks, the police were forced later to apologise to the occupants.
