In partnership with British Transport
Police and Network Rail, Team London Bridge is launching a ‘Safe Space’ inside
London Bridge Station throughout the festive period.
Open Thursday, Friday and Saturday
evenings from 17:00 to midnight, the area (located next to the station
reception near Platform 15) will be staffed by medics as well as British
Transport Police officers who will be on hand to assist the vulnerable and ‘worse
for wear’ in and around the station.
With medical and security incidents typically peaking at this time of year, the purpose of the project
is to ensure passengers – many of whom work and socialise locally – get home safely without falling victim to crime, or causing harm
to themselves and others.
The initiative will be running from 29th
November up to and including 31st December 2018.
