Plans approved for new City of London Police base on Aldgate housing estate

A new police base has been approved in an area where documents showed there was a “significant” demand for policing.

The new eastern base for the City of London Police has been approved to be situated on an Aldgate housing estate.

The base will not act as a front desk for the force, but will instead be available for officers to report into.

However, local residents have voiced their concerns about the plans saying they would “damage our quality of life”.

Paul has been down on the scene and has this report.
