24/7 policing disappears

One of H&F Tories' flagship policies - 24/7 policing - seems to be disappearing by stealth.

Fulham Broadway and Hammersmith Broadway have been trumpeted as benefiting from round the clock police activity.

Now without any fanfare, the policing in these two areas has been reduced to 18/7 with so-called 'enhanced teams' - not quite such a headline grabber.

No wonder Tory leader Cllr Stephen Greenhalgh was not so enthusiastic about his flagship policy when asked at a recent public meeting why it was not being extended to other parts of the borough.
