Estate raided weeks before murders
The investigation into the murders of David and Mark Short involved officers on armed patrol 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in the Clayton and Droylsden areas, he added.
But he explained that "clearly we cannot send armed officers to the hundreds of incidents we get not only in these areas but also in other areas".
He said: "These were two officers going about their normal duties. Like all officers, they went to a variety of incidents not knowing what it was that they would face."
