'Stop and search' discussed at City Hall

The way the Metropolitan police use stop and search has been questioned at City Hall.

More than 150,000 operations were carried out last year, many based on intelligence of suspects carrying weapons.

But the force also used Section 60 orders, particularly after violence, to allow officers to stop people without reason. 

Some communities have voiced their concerns again over unconscious bias of the police when using Section 60.
