Red Caps roll into action on Regent Street

The New West End Company's Red Cap security staff were called in to help employees of West End store Expensive run a gauntlet of anti-fur protesters.

Protesters have demonstrated outside the Regent Street fashion store for some weeks and have been abusive to staff. The Red Caps were called in to protect shopworkers until police arrived.

- Metropolitan Police deputy assistant commissioner Andy Trotter met Red Caps earlier this month in a bid to strengthen the relationship between the two organisations.
