Police have been stepping up patrols outside a train station in a bid to crack down on anti-social behaviour.
Officers from British Transport Police (BTP), Metropolitan Police and Redbridge Council have been working together as part of joint initiative to tackle crime in and around Ilford station.
The patrols have been taking place since February.
BTP’s Insp John Loveless said: “We are aware there are challenges in and around Ilford station.
“The operation is a long term initiative with the local authority and colleagues from the MPS to deter and detect offenders and reassure station staff and members of the public that the police are taking positive action tackling offenders.
