|Jonathan Bartley and Cllr Scott Ainslie: keeping police in Streatham|
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan is consulting on plans to close all Lambeth's police stations, except Brixton and Gipsy Hill. The police base in Streatham, opened only two years ago at the cost of £500,00 would be lost, under the mayor's plans.

Local dad and Green Party co-leader Jonathan Bartley has launched a petition to save Streatham's police base.

Jonathan, who sucessfully campaigned alongside Cllr Scott Ainslie to keep a police presence in Streatham, said: "The London Mayor isn't pretending he has to make these cuts. He says he wants to close Streatham's police base as part of his programme to sell expensive, underused buildings and divert resources from where they are no longer needed. But this makes no sense. Streatham's new police base is well used, efficient and cheap to run.
