Ways to tackle crime was the main agenda at a special conference, after the borough saw an 18per cent increase of violent crimes, the highest in London.

Police, London Ambulance Service and charities were just some of the services that gathered at last week’s Group Violence and Knife Crime Conference at the town hall where they shared tactics on how to prevent offences from taking place.

The conference focused on how they can help young people avoid a life of crime.

John Wright, London Ambulance Service, said: “I would now like to see what comes from this conference.

“Whether we can get any joint working partnerships together to start to deliver projects to young people throughout the borough.”

Watch Havering Council’s video go find out more about what was discussed.
