Locals in Wapping are reaching the end of their tether with dangerous driving around Wapping every evening.
Youths are using our quiet streets for car racing, with car crashes, drug use and intimidation a common problem. We are calling for proper policing in the area, and this has become urgent with a number of car crashes in recent weeks.
We have met the head of Tower Hamlets Police, who has called for more police in our Borough, to reflect the increasing crime and population. Local campaigner Stephen O’Shea says “Commander Williams is committed to fixing anti-social behaviour in Wapping. However, she can’t do this until the Mayor of London improves police numbers in Tower Hamlets. Let’s help our police and build a campaign for proper policing in the Borough.”
Please support this by signing our petition, sending Mayor Sadiq Khan a message to give Wapping and Tower Hamlets the police that we need.
