Message from the Leader of Merton Council and Merton Borough Commander

Message from the Leader and Borough Commander
As you have seen in the national media coverage, many areas of London suffered violence and looting over night. The Tandem Centre in our own Colliers Wood was targeted by criminals intent on committing both arson and looting.

Council officers have been working around the clock with very brave officers from the Metropolitan Police and the London Fire Brigade.

There can be no defence of this criminality, and the council will continue to work with the police to bring the perpetrators to justice.

We ask that if anyone has information about those involved in the violence and looting in Colliers Wood or at any of the other locations affected by the violence, they contact the police.

Leader of Merton Council, Councillor Stephen Alambritis

Chief Superintendent Dick Wolfenden
