Crime Rate In London Is Falling
Crime is continuing to fall in London with 46,500 fewer offences committed in the last year - with robbery at its lowest for 40 years.

The Met’s latest figures for the year 2013/14 show over a 6% reduction in crime in the Capital compared with the previous 12 month period.

Proactive measures to cut law-breaking have include high-visibility operations targeting specific crimes ranging from mobile phone theft to burglary.

Officers say there’s still a great deal of work to do but feel they’re moving in the right direction and hope Londoners will be reassured by these successes.

Tolworth is a "cesspit" of rubbish


That’s the view of some people living behind the new £3 million Broadway redevelopment.

Residents in Broadoaks claim fly-tipping is so bad, they can’t park and are finding the dumped waste a health hazard.

As well as fly-tipping, businesses like Poundland are being singled out for negating to clean up their rubbish.



The road is private, so cannot be cleared by the authorities.

This resident led a community clean up last summer. The results lasted only two weeks.

Davey wants to use rivers to make energy
The Energy Secretary Ed Davey wants 4 and a half million pumps installed across the UK - using river water to make energy.

The system - which heats the water up enough to power things like radiators - can cut customer bills by up to 20 per cent.

But developers say they're put off installing eco-friendly technology by tight planning restrictions.

The Kingston and Surbiton MP says recent events mean a re-think is needed.
