UPDATE: POLICE have sealed off a car park next to Harlow Town Railway Station.
Uniformed officers are standing by an area at the rear of the car park near to the entrance/exit fo the Network Rail Car Park.
There was also a large number of police vehicles and ambulances on standby at River Way but it is unknown at this point if it is related.
YH has contacted the British Transport Police press office for more details.
1800 hrs: There is severe disruption at Harlow Town Station due to a police incident.
Please check Greater Anglia for more details.
Could the incident be connected with the Travelodge next door?
Jean McApine Park was sealed off the other day with a large Police presence no mention of that as far as I can see. Seems to be the norm for the Town nowadays, far cry from the idyllic place of 50 years or do ago.
How is this not attempted murder
Me, even if it was treated as attempted murder they'd be let out on bail!!! No deterrent in another prime example of lawless harlow.
