Medic terror clowns

I've been inundated with emails from the college, department and university. Everyone is sending out the official police statement to all the members of the university. The official message comes from the Cambridgeshire Constabulary is:

Cambridgeshire police is appealing for the public to be extra vigilant following security alerts in London and Glasgow.

"There is nothing to suggest any connection with Cambridgeshire," said Assistant Chief Constable, Mark Hopkins. "But it is important that members of the public remain vigilant and report any unusual packages, vehicles or activity in their communities or elsewhere.

"There is no need for alarm, but we would ask people to take the commonsense precautions to be expected in these situations."

Any suspicions should be reported to the anti-terrorist hotline number, 0800 XXX XXX or to Cambridgeshire Constabulary.
Maybe, they're worried about the medical students here! It has come to light that all the suspect terror clowns in custody are related to the NHS. The BBC had also shown an old video, yesterday, which shows a masked medical student from Birmingham University who was radicalised and holding an automatic rifle.

It's funny though, to see the official graphic from the poster. It features a mobile phone, camera and computer. It says that terrorists presumably need these items to help them plan and execute their acts of terror. Although I don't carry a mobile phone around with me, I quite often go around town with my SLR camera. I should stick to taking pictures of safe things.

UPDATE@1835: Seems like there is a link between the terror clowns and Cambridge. Seems like one of the suspects in custody, used to live on the very same road that I'm living on now! No wonder I've seen a heightened police presence on my road yesterday. And another one of the suspects used to work at Addy's! Quite cool leh.
