Calls are mounting which ask Boris Johnson to rethink his cuts to neighbourhood policing after new research from the Met reveals almost half of Londoners don't believe the Met have visible presence in their area.
Labour London Assembly member Fiona Twycross joined Headline London to explain why she wants Mr Johnson to reverse his decision to reduce the numbers of policing teams on the street. Under the current Conservative government, there are 43,000 less officers and PCSOs on the streets than there once were.
Ms Twycross feels this is disingenuous, given the Mayor is supposed to be increasing the public's confidence in policing. She says he will miss his target.
Her calls come as it was revealed that crime in London has risen by 22 per cent.
