Perhaps our area would be safer if candidates paid a visit

• AS we enter the hustings I note that there has been some debate about the personal safety of candidates, with each receiving contact details for a senior police officer should they require assistance or advice.

Perhaps candidates for Holborn and St Pancras could visit us in St Giles, Shaftesbury Avenue and Charing Cross Road. They would immediately feel unsafe in this cesspit of criminal activity, anti-social behaviour and drug dealing that plagues this neighbourhood.

And perhaps the Metropolitan Police Service and council community safety response to their concerns would be better than currently experienced by long suffering residents, visitors and businesses. I won’t hold my breath.
