Portobello Road antiques dealers have a fresh chance to air their views about police cover in the area now that a public meeting has been rearranged.
Traders were angry that an earlier meeting
was cancelled, with the police citing lack of time because of the
busy summer of Jubilee and Olympics. They are concerned about a
rise in robberies and reduced police patrols.
But the new date is this week - on
Wednesday, July 18, from 6-7.30pm at Lighthouse West London, with
Kensington and Chelsea borough commander CS Jason Gwillim
Although the meeting is not a specific
dealers/police one, and is for discussing policing across the
borough, it is a chance for traders to ask questions about reduced
police cover in the market area on Saturdays.
A more specific dealers' meeting may well be
held in future, but no details of this are available yet.
