PC Knellar and Watford took it in turns to wheel a stolen moped back to police station today. They mixed up tactics with plain clothes and uniform and in doing so gained vital evidence in finding those responsible for these crimes!

While collective decision making is often a good thing, this system prioritises the rights of cars to dominate our streets and creates large barriers to actually getting cycle hangars 👇🏽

The lack of bike storage space on our streets in Wandsworth is becoming unsustainable. Every street should have one, particularly given many who live on our streets don’t even own cars. Yet currently you need 51% of your street to sign a petition putting many people off applying

"What are you doing about knife crime" is a question we get asked a lot by members of public. As a local policing team in we are carrying out weapons sweeps, proactive stop and search and providing a visible deterrent.

Living rent homes are part Labour’s long-term plan to establish new types of housing linked to what people can afford to pay, not what landlords or developers can get away with charging. (2/2)

In London 68% of households spend over 1/3 of their income on rent – this is considered by Shelter & others as a benchmark of whether renters are paying too much. Living in London is expensive enough & I know a huge amount of Battersea residents struggle w the cost of rent (1/2)

Farewell to a real local fixture. John Sullivan said he based the characters in Only Fools and Horses on the street traders in Balham, where he grew up
