  • It has been announed on local tv news that it was another stabbing on Sandy Hill Road. Another young life lost on the streets of London how sad.

  • Half kilometre radius of this area has had multiple stabbings and another murder nearby on the main road, during the day it’s absolutely fine but greater police presence would be welcomed. Dismal pub nearby too, but thats a lesser thing to worry about.

  • i agree a greater Police presence in the area be very much welcomed 24/7.

    We need more Police officers recruited across the Greater London area.
