They were all due to attend a ceremony on Sunday for the 67 British lives lost in 9/11.

Posters praising the British bobby adorn the Brooklyn brownstones. And the appreciation is mutual.

Stephen Jones, from Humberside Police, says: "A lot of policemen died and no matter what country you're in you have the same shared values, so it's important for us to show that we care.

"It wasn't a crime just against America, it was worldwide."

The repercussions from that day were felt keenly in another Brooklyn neighbourhood, Bay Ridge, which has the largest Arab-American community in the New York area.

The Arab-American association shares its anniversary with 9/11, having been formed in response to the anti-Muslim backlash that followed the attacks.
