Lynne Featherstone MP welcomes police response to Linden Road burglaries

Lynne Featherstone MP last week visited Linden Road in Muswell Hill, following a recent spate of burglaries in the area.

In November three houses were burgled in the space of two weeks. A car was also stolen and on one occasion an armed response unit was called.

The Liberal Democrat MP subsequently received numerous emails from constituents, who were worried about safety in their local area.

The MP for Hornsey and Wood Green has since been making enquiries into the police response to the incidents. The safer neighbourhood team for the area are treating these burglaries as a priority.

Liberal Democrat Councillor for Muswell Hill, Gail Engert, commented:

“Burglaries are always distressing for the residents concerned, and their neighbours. Muswell Hill Councillors work closely with our local police Safer Neighbourhood team.

“At a meeting in November between local residents, the police and Councillors, Linden Road was made a priority. We will continue to monitor the situation.”

Lynne Featherstone MP commented:

“I was shocked to hear about these incidents. People should feel safe in their own homes.

“I was, however, glad to be made aware of the burglaries, and to hear that the local police are treating this as a priority. I hope the quick police reaction will prevent further burglaries here, and in the surrounding areas.”
