CAMBRIDGESHIRE police are urging residents to join the campaign against terrorism by using a confidential hotline to pass on information.

The plea to pick up the phone and report any suspicious activity came as a national, anti-terrorist hotline campaign got under way.

Detective Inspector Dan Middleton, the officer leading the campaign in Cambridgeshire, said: "It is vital that members of the public tell us about even their slightest suspicions.

"People may notice unusual activity at another house, cars coming and going at odd times of the day or night, or numbers of strange callers.

"Landlords, too, should be aware of who property is being let to, and be sure that names and bank accounts are authentic.

"Business owners asked for large quantities of chemicals also need to be as sure as they can that they will be used for legitimate purposes.

"Cambridgeshire is one of the safest places in the country, and we want it to stay that way.

"This is not about being a nosey neighbour, but being responsible and caring. If you see something that worries or concerns you, or just raises doubt in your mind, please don't keep it to yourself."

INFORMATION: Call the confidential hotline on 0800 789321.
