Met Police: Up to 300 armed officers hand in guns as Army on standby

Up to 300 Metropolitan Police officers have stepped back from firearms duties as the Army remains on standby to support the force.

Additional officers from surrounding forces have been drafted in over the weekend to help, the Met has said.

It comes after an officer, known as NX121, was charged with murdering Chris Kaba, 24, who was shot last September.

Senior Met officers spent the weekend meeting some armed staff who have decided to "consider their position".

But the Met has rejected media reports that all 2,595 firearms officers have stepped back from armed duties.

In a fresh statement, the Met insisted the "vast majority" of firearms officers remain deployed across London.
