11:01am Saturday 7th July 2012 in News
A LARGE number of police units were in part of York today.
About half a dozen police vehicles were close to the Waggon And Horses pub in Lawrence Street, including police dogs.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said this was not in connection with a specific incident.
He said: "The heavy police presence is expected in the Lawrence Street area throughout the day.
"This is merely a pre-planned procedural exercise, and members of the public have no need to be concerned."
