It's not all shooting people and scampering about to cover-up afterwards being in the Met police. Oh, no, the cops are also busy cancelling rap gigs, slapping a ban on Kano:

A statement issued from Scotland Yard said: "Police wish to bring the following to the notice of ticket holders of the event that was due to be held at La Scala nightclub in Pentonville Road, N1, on Thursday October 27 featuring Kano plus special guests.

"This event has been cancelled and the venue will be shut for the evening."

Concert organisers Metropolis Music have also spoken out about the cancellation, saying: "We have been instructed by the police that we cannot go ahead with the Kano concert at the Scala on Thursday (October 27). The police have acquired intelligence that unsavoury characters intended to cause trouble at the concert. This intelligence was received from Operation Trident."

They added: "The police have stated that this is no reflection on Kano and have had no problems at previous events that he has performed at in London. There are no plans to reschedule the show at this time and customers are advised to obtain a refund at point of purchase."

Operation Trident is the Met operation designed to counter gun crime "amongst London's black communities", apparently.
