LETTER: I hope armed officers is rare occurrence

editorial image

Several days after the horrific incident in Manchester, while in Mansfield town centre, I saw two armed police officers.

It’s one matter to see it on television, factual is another.

I did recall also being witness to armed officers a few years ago at Nottingham court, a friend was on the jury. 
I would hope this sight is a very rare occurrence, not only during what lifetime I have, but also the future.
