More than half of London’s police stations will close, right at the time when the terror threat is through the roof and there’s a gun and knife crime epidemic.
37 police stations are set to close soon, meaning just one 24-hour police station will be open to the public in every borough.

Here’s a list of all the stations that are due to close:
|Hammersmith & Fulham||Fulham|
|Wood Green/Fishmongers Arms|
|Kensington and Chelsea||Notting Hill|
|Tower Hamlets||Brick Lane|
|Waltham Forest||Walthamstow Town Centre|
|West End Central|
Sadiq Khan, said: “Keeping Londoners safe is my number-one priority, and supporting officers out on the beat in our communities is more important than keeping open buildings that are simply not used by the vast majority of the public, and where just eight per cent of crimes are reported.”
Put simply, if Khan’s top priority really was keeping Londoners safe then he’d be doing everything possible to keep these stations open. All this for the sake of saving £8m. Law and order in Britain is under serious threat.
