POLICE are turning to the worldwide web to help catch London's dangerous villains.
The Met Police have launched a website with the Crimestoppers crime-fighting charity today (Mon) to help track down offenders who've slipped the net.
The new website, London's Most Wanted, seeks public help in London as well as around Britain and abroad, to trace suspects wanted for serious crimes who have evaded capture.
Met Police Deputy Commissioner Tim Godwin said: "We will always need the public's help. This new website is a web tool that everyone can use to help get these criminals off our streets."
The website carries more information which allows search categories by crime, type and location.
