ANOTHER 50 police officers are being put on public transport in London for the New Year.

The Mayor of London has earmarked the cash to recruit seven new teams on the railways to help reduce crime at high crime’ stations.

Another 50 rail staff are being seconded by the rail companies to work with the British Transport Police teams.

The move by City Hall is on top of the £9 million a year investment by train companies themselves to improve public security with more CCTV cameras on trains and at stations and more security staff.
