Kidnappers at RAF base ‘avoided CCTV cameras on two routes away from the scene’

Attackers who tried to abduct an RAF serviceman at knifepoint may have deliberately chosen their escape route to avoid CCTV, it was claimed yesterday.

As police continued their search for the two suspects, a source said they managed to avoid security cameras on at least two of the main routes away from the scene.

And it has now emerged that a total of 70 officers – including 20 from Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism squad – are hunting for the men.
