The neighbourhood police team in Harold Wood are one of the most popular and successful teams in North East London, so it is no surprise that Conservative Mayoral Candidate, Boris Johnson, wanted to meet them and learn about their work.
Here he is pictured with PCSOs on bicycles which were purchased for them by local businesses. Boris heard how they had used their bikes to combat the 'mini moped' nuisance over the summer, chasing rogue drivers across country. Mini mopeds are now a thing of the past in Harold Hill.
Boris also visited the refurbished library and spoke to shoppers, who gave him a very enthuisiastic welcome.
He went on to be interviewed live by community radio station, Link FM and gave a well received speech at a packed dinner.
