Where have all the policemen come from?

This morning's Metro Momento

I'm sure loads of people have been discussing the groups of police we are seeing at tube stations now, where they've come from, why they seem to be mainly chatting, what other crimes might be committed while they are watching stations etc, etc.
Diamond Geezer's post had a level of discussion like this and we've been alluding to here too. But in today's Metro there was a great letter from Chris Gilbert in Hertfordshire:

"I have noticed a group of four police officers standing around in a group chatting near the Tube station close to where I work. Maybe this is deliberate, to get the commuters chatting to each other as well? Fortunately, at London Bridge at least, there is a fifth member of the police team, who is presumably in charge. He is always very alert and business-like. He's also healthy, judging by his wet nose and shiny coat."
