?HUNDREDS OF POLICE ON STANDBY TO STOP TRAFALGAR SQUARE DEATH PARTY?

From Ian Bone


From tonight?s Evening Standard????they are panicking.


Hundreds of police are on stand-by in London as anarchists threatened a mass ?party? in Trafalgar Square to celebrate the death of Margaret Thatcher.


Scotland Yard revealed that it has already launched a major operation to counter threats of disorder in the run up to her funeral next week.


All further leave for officers has been cancelled and operations are being run from a special command and control operations room in Lambeth.


Protesters say a demonstration in Trafalgar Square on Saturday will be a focus for discontent in the run up to next Wednesday?s funeral.


The event is being organised by anarchist group Class War while other groups such as the All London Anarchist Revolutionary Mob, which says it is ?committed to radical action to undermine the state,? are also mobilising supporters to attend.


Senior police officers are said to have been initially ?quite relaxed? about security in London following Mrs Thatcher?s death but views have hardened since unrest in Brixton and Bristol where seven police officers were injured.
