Crackdown on crime at Stratford station
POLICE and council officers have staged a day-long crackdown on crime at Stratford station.
Operation Lockdown was part of a zero tolerance approach to tackling anti-social behaviour at the area’s transport links.
Members of the public were invited to walk through a screening arch and passive drugs dogs were patrolling with officers.
Some 45 people were issued with fixed penalty notices for offences such as littering, while arrests were made for drugs, theft, immigration and public order offences.
The operation was staged by Newham’s Safer Transport and Safer Neighbourhood teams, working with British Transport Police and council street scene enforcement officers.
