Liberal Democrats call for budget boost for policing


The Liberal Democrats are calling on the Government to use this month’s Budget to fund additional police officers.

Crime was falling before 2015 but since then Conservative cuts have eroded the police force’s strength and crime is increasing again in London.

Local campaigner Stephen Crosher says, “One of the main worries of residents in Gospel Oak is the increase in crime, particularly thieves on mopeds.”

“We need more police officers back on our streets, and more youth services to keep kids away from crime.”
