Two years ago, Cllr Paul Kohler won his court case to stop the Mayor of London closing Wimbledon Police Station.
Today he has some further good news. Paul said:
"I was contacted by the BCU commander Sally Benatar today and told that Wimbledon Police Station has been chosen as the site for a combined emergency response unit covering Merton & Wandsworth.
"This is brilliant news following the success of our legal action to prevent the station’s closure.
"And whilst it doesn’t guarantee the station’s long term future it is another positive sign that the operational arguments we have pursued for last 3 years are winning through. It also means Wimbledon’s 24 hour front desk, which was only saved because of our legal action, remains open."
