That's a nice find. Is the Abbey in the City area or the Met?

I'd have thought that Westminster Abbey would be in Met territory.

Westminster Abbey came under the Mets A Division jurisdiction.

The article alludes to a special division created purely for the Jubilee, however I think that there is confusion with O Division, which only came into existence during coronations.
