Hanwell Residents Demand Action Over Crime Wave
Police say they are working with Ealing Council and the community
Police are urging angry Hanwell residents to work with them to try and deal with an increase in crime and anti-social behaviour.
It follows reports of a number of muggings in the W7 area as well continuous issues with street-drinking and drug use, and is by way of response to the news that a young mother was recently forced out of her home by drug addicts who threated to kill her daughter.
A MPS spokesperson told us:
Local residents have been growing increasingly angry about the problems blighting their neighbourhood and believe W7 has suffered because alcohol exclusion zones have been introduced in other areas - shifting many anti-social activities to Hanwell.
In a bid to highlight the issue and force the police and council to consider re-introducing an exclusion zone in Hanwell, residents are planning a protest expected to take place next month.
