TRANSPORT police are urging commuters to meet them to thrash out any concerns about crime and safety on the London Underground.

Officers from the Neighbourhood Policing team that patrols the Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City and Circle lines are holding an open consultation on December 8.

They want to identify local policing needs and priorities from passengers who use Aldgate, Liverpool Street and Moorgate stations.

Sgt Barry Harding, the Neighbourhood patrol leader, said: “We want to make sure our priorities on the Tube are in line with what the community actually wants from us. The best way we can do this is speak with people and hear their issues and concerns.”

The meeting at Liverpool Street Station is in Ashby House, through the ticket barrier on platform 10, from 3.30pm to 6pm on December 8.

Officers are on hand to meet anyone at the barrier without a ticket who wants to turn up. Those

unable to get there can comment by email here.
