London’s Metropolitan Police on Tuesday warned potential trouble-makers looking to disrupt the Royal wedding that they will be dealt with severely.
A number of fringe and extremist groups are planning demonstrations or counter-demonstrations on Prince William and Kate Middleton’s big day.
“We are very clear that we want this to be a safe, secure and happy event and we intend to interact robustly, quickly and firmly if anyone engages in any criminal activity,” said Assistant Commissioner Lynne Owens.
The Met said it has received no specific threat ahead of Friday’s ceremony.
An estimated 5,000 police officers will be on duty, while helicopters will swoop over London to relay information to them.
Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to line the streets of the British capital, with many dignitaries and royals from Britain and abroad set to attend.
