Police have stepped up patrols outside schools in Hampstead - after a spate of road rage incidents during busy school run times.
PC Edward Bromilow, of the Frognal and Fitzjohns safer neighbourhoods team, said: “We are continuing our on/off presence outside the schools around Fitzjohn’s, less so for the parent crime and more so for traffic issues, as I have been made aware of a few road rage reports.”
PC Bromilow said: “This isn’t needed at all, especially when children are involved.”
The area around Fitzjohns Avenue and Arkwright Road is a notorious school run blackspot with the high concentration of schools with hundreds of parents in cars descending on the area in the morning and mid-afternoon to pick up and drop off their children and fighting over a limited number of parking spaces.
