With two weeks to save our police base, campaign reaches ITV News
Metropolitan Police Force budgets face cuts of around £1billion since 2010 - and savings are being sought across the capital.
But the mayor's proposals to make cuts by closing almost all the police bases in Lambeth - leaving just Brixton open - are facing strong opposition, especially in Streatham, where the new police base opened less than three years ago at a cost of £500,000.
Councillors and residents met on Thursday to co-ordinate campaigns agains the threatened closure.
"We encourage everyone in Streatham to complete the mayor's consultation, which ends on 2 October," said Cllr Ainslie. "There are only two weeks left to save our police base."
