  • I Hope the victim goes on to make a full recovery . The suspect is caught sooner rather than later so he cannot assualt anyone else.
    Crime remains on the increase in London and action needs to be taken to reduce crime as a matter of great importance.
    The public also need to be notified much sooner after incidents happen so the public can be more alert and aware and know to take care.

  • Need more police patrolling woolwich town day abs though the night as it’s not safe to walk anywhere around here
