Two people were arrested after two incidents at Metro Bank in Bromley High Street yesterday (August 21) afternoon.

Police were called at around 5.10pm to reports of a man attempting to open a bank account with false documents.

They arrested a 33-year-old man for possession of a false identification card.

The man was later given an adult caution for the offence and referred to immigration officers over his immigration status.

While officers were at the bank they also came across an incident between two women.

A 54-year-old woman was arrested at the scene on suspicion of ABH and assault on a police officer.

She remains in police custody at a south London police station.

Enquiries continue.

The problem with placing stories like this, is that it becomes just gossip, or worse still perpetuates F.U.D.

I could quite easily be a training operation, or something quite minor, or indeed it may be a

Without the 5Ws, Newshopper places itself no higher than talk over a garden fence.

Thank you for the introduction.

Don't worry the banks will take your home too when they like as you are only the registered keeper of your house, which you funded with your own signature.

Banks dont have money to lend out, they create money with your signature giving (power of attourney) to them.

Biggest scam in human history.

Didn't want to dissapoint my fans.
