Hampstead residents raise £180,000 to fund own police

A scheme which sees Londoners fund their own police officer has seen Hampstead residents raise £180,000 in just one month.

People living in Frognal, Fitzjohns and Hampstead Town wards have pledged to raise £60,000 annually for three years to fund a dedicated neighbourhood ward officer - an iniative which would then see the Metropolitan police match fund another officer for the area.

Jessica Learmond-Criqui, Chair of the Frognal and Fitzjohns Safer neighbourhood panel, has been speaking to London Live News about the plan.
