MAYOR Boris Johnson's vow to look at all the Met's properties has won a stay of execution for doomed police stations.
The Mayor ordered officers not to sell stations until adequate alternative buildings are found.
But this could still mean the death knell for the stations on Rosslyn Hill, Holmes Road in Kentish Town and Finchley Road in Golders Green and smaller "front counter" replacements for Safer Neighbourhoods Teams.
London Assembly Member for Barnet and Camden Brian Coleman said: "He has told the Metropolitan Police Authority to re-examine the whole strategy and go back to the drawing board to find alternative premises."

However, what will be included in the new premises has yet to be established and has not allayed fears that a large number of officers will be moved out of Hampstead, Kentish Town and Golders Green.
Front counter services still look set to stay, while a central patrol base in Holborn could serve the whole of Camden.
