Local campaigners across the borough took part in Labour's SOS999 Day of Action on Monday ( Feb 25) to highlight deep cuts to London's frontline emergency services being forced through by the Conservatives.

On the day the Mayor of London forced through his Budget which will mean deep, risky cuts to our 999 services, local campaigners were out early leafleting at tube and rail stations from Chiswick to Hounslow.

Cllr Ruth Cadbury said: "People here are concerned about hospital and ambulance service cuts, about the closure of Brentford Police Station and reduced hours at Chiswick, and the cuts to Safer Neighbourhood Teams across the borough.  People believe that Boris Johnson's cuts are too deep, too fast and not needed.  They risk the very safety and security of Londoners.

“Labour members of  the London Assembly have a fully-costed plan which shows the money is there to keep frontline police stations open – and keep Londoners safe,” she said.
