Safety

London’s police and other emergency services do a great job, but the priorities and resources set for them are key to their ability and our overall safety.

Security

Safety

Were living through times when the essence of life is indeed disrespected, which is clearly an anathema.

A Hundred percent security for the public's safety is just impossibility. However, there are a number of ways to improve the public's current security.

Rogues on Westminster Bridge

Safety

Last evening at 5pm I crossed Westminster Bridge and was shocked and horrified by the number of groups of men fleecing the innocent/naive tourists with the game using 3 cups, I believe it is called "Find the Lady".

Safety

The roads have never been busier, and new rules and procedures have been introduced in recent years that make them more dangerous than ever, for pedestrians.
