Does anyone know what was going on yesterday afternoon with the police in Fann Street/ Golden Lane?

I walked out onto our balcony and saw two vehicles parked near the corner with Golden Lane , one police , the other paramedics. Moments later I noticed the yellow from where I was sitting indoors and thought , ‘ they have moved’. On looking out again I saw the whole road full of police vehicles and two officers putting-on  bullet-proof vests , and with a rifle each. They went north up Golden Lane. Then police came out of a van with a very excited Springer Spaniel, they proceed to walk in the same direction. 

Not long after on hearing barking , I looked out to see most vehicles gone and one car plus the police dog van preparing to leave.

It seemed quite a big operation but no idea what it was about. Of course there is no reason why we should know but I wonder if anyone further North on the Estate saw anything
