A former police station that was axed by the Mayor of London last year has been sold for £5.3million.

Golders Green Police Station was closed on June 24 last year, the same day that Hampstead Police Station was shut down.

The former station in Finchley Road, Golders Green, was one of 32 police buildings that were sold off in the financial year 2013/2014, raising a total of £124.5million.

The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) said it will be converted for residential or community use.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: “I pledged to deliver savings from the police estate in the face of unprecedented budget pressures and without compromising on resourcing for frontline policing.

“As a direct benefit of shedding under-utilised sites, we are freeing up tens of millions of pounds to maintain police officer numbers and to generate savings to invest in the future.”

MOPAC declined to reveal how much it made from the sale of Hampstead station in Rosslyn Hill, Hampstead, to the Department for Education, although the figure will be published at some stage in the future.
