Speaking to The Daily Echo an eyewitness said

I heard someone on the 19th floor had a gun and police have gone up there with dog handlers. It’s very dramatic seeing police with dogs like that.

Several marked and unmarked police cars were spotted in the area.

Speaking to the Daily Echo, Labour City councillor for Redbridge, said

There are a lot of police officers there and in light of what is happening across the Channel it’s actually quite frightening to see this kind of heavy police presence in the community.

Hampshire Constabulary have refused to comment on the issue.
