More police officers from London’s Metropolitan service now live outside of London than those living in the city, a Freedom of Information request has revealed.
ITV News report:
Only two in five Met officers live in London according to figures released today.
The figures which were obtained under a freedom of information request shows just 43% of the 30,367 officers were last month living in a London borough.
This is a sharp fall from 2010 when 50.6% of the force lived in the capital when London Mayor Boris Johnson’s deputy Kit Malthouse warned of a “growing divide” between the public and police.
