London Transport crime down 8.3%

New figures have shown an 8.3% decrease in the crimes committed on public transport in London compared to the year 2014-15. The figures came out as Conservative Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, announced the details of policing the 24 hour tube which comes into effect in September and includes the jubilee line which goes to North Greenwich. The DLR which serves Greenwich and Woolwich is also set to offer a 24 hour service.

General Election results

The voting is over and the counting is done - and we would like to thank everyone in Greenwich who voted Conservative in last week's General Election, and the council by-election in Greenwich West ward held on the same day.
