Cuts in policing hit Hammersmith Broadway

The Tory council's much trumpeted policy of 24/7 policing in two parts of the borough has come with a big price.

Inevitably it has meant cuts in the number of police officers elsewhere, not least the Hammersmith Broadway ward which includes Hammersmith Grove and Hammersmith bus station.

Clearly the round-the-clock policing pilots at Fulham and Shepherds Bush are going to take resources away from other parts of the borough which will now attract more crime.

Why should the majority of local residents suffer as a result of this experiment?
