The presence of armed police officers on campus earlier today

Armed police officers from West Midlands Police attended campus today in order to enquire if an individual was present who they wished to speak to. The circumstances that they wished to speak to them about were not related to any of the current national security matters being investigated by UK police forces.

The police left the campus after making contact with the individual who was in fact not on campus but actually in a totally different region of the UK. We are informed that on speaking to the individual concerned that the police were satisfied that the individual had absolutely no knowledge of the matter they were looking into, and that that line of enquiry has now closed.
