Liberal Democrats will tackle moped crime


Belsize Lib Dems have set up a working group of Liberal Democrat representatives from across London, to discuss ways to help the police tackle growing incidences of moped-enabled crime.

In Belsize crime rose by 28% in 2017, with "theft from the person" crimes and robberies the categories most commonly used to classify moped-enabled crime, together rising by 23%.

Liberal Democrat Focus Team member Luisa Porritt said: “Neither the Labour-controlled Camden council nor the Tories who currently represent Belsize have done enough to tackle the rise in this frightening form of crime. That’s why after hearing so much concern from local residents, we are looking at practical ways to help the police deal with this if elected.”
