Police presence is ‘training exercise’

A number of police – including the underwater search unit – have been spotted at Downtown in Boston this morning.

A police van, a 4x4 vehicle and the underwater search unit were in the car park of the store earlier this morning, prompting concenrns that something may be happening in the area.

However, a police spokesman told The Standard this morning that no incidents have been reported to the force, and that the police presence was simply due to a training exercise for the team.
