Police appeal

Residents will be aware of 2 very recent serious incidents in the local area.

Officers from the Met's specialist Operation Trident are now investigating both cases - one in a youth club in Balmes Road, the other at the junction of Buckingham Road and De Beauvoir Road.

Following the first incident local councillors chaired a meeting of police, residents and the management of the youth club involved, at the Rose Lipman Centre.

Councillors sought the assurance that the youth club would not re-open until police, residents and Hackney Council are satisfied the venue is safe for residents, young people and any youth workers.

Any witnesses or anyone with information can call Hackney Police on 0300 123 1212 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
