Hampstead Police Station could close to the public


Campaigners have warned of a wipe-out of public services after planned closures of fire and police stations were announced.

Hampstead, West Hampstead and Albany Street police stations could be closed to the public for good, as the Met scours its budgets for savings.

Although teams would still be based at the stations, the front counters would be closed for good. The only station that would be open 24 hours a day would be in Holborn.

Belsize Fire Station is also under threat from closure.
