Newham Under Temporary Section 60 Lock-down Order

Newham police are increasing their stop and search powers in reaction to a stabbing of a 13-year-old in Gainsborough Avenue yesterday.

Borough Commander Breen has authorised a section 60 order, which increases the right of the police to search people in a defined area if they believe serious violence is likely to take place

The order will be in place until Saturday at 6am.

Police were called after a 13-year-old was stabbed near Little Ilford Park on Thursday evening. Three youths were arrested on suspicion of grevious bodily harm.

The boy is in a serious but stable condition.

Section 60 orders of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 are only authorised when deemed a “proportionate and necessary response”. They are different to regular stop and searches as they require the authority of a senior officer and officers do not need reasonable grounds to believe the suspect is carrying a dangerous weapon to carry out a search.

Meanwhile,

MET Police Commissioner Cressida Dick has announced there will be more stop and search powers in London in an effort to “suppress” violence in the capital following a spate of brutal attacks

Speaking on LBC, Commissioner Cressida Dick said: “We will be doing more stopping and searching of people in an effort to suppress violence and of course to take weapons of the street.

“We will be doing more stop and search for weapons and indeed we have been doing more and more stop and search for the purpose of finding weapons.

“We have found more weapons.”

Ms Dick said over 300 police offers will be deployed on the streets of London over the weekend specifically to target knife crime in the areas most affected.

She added: “It is certainly not going to bring back people who were killed but, I think you will agree, this is not a job for the police alone. It really isn’t.”

The Commissioner also pledged to use “Al Capone” tactics in an effort to tackle London’s violent crime problem.

Prime Minister Theresa May reformed stop and search powers when she was the Home Secretary to make it harder for police to do stop and search. The move was part of an effort to build a better relationship between the police and public.

London mayor Sadiq Khan has faced increasing criticism for his record over crime in London during his tenure as Mayor.

The Mayor of London has faced particular scrutiny over the rise of knife crime after there were 80 fatal attacks in the capital last year and 55 so far in 2018.

“My officers were flagged down to the Link Street incident and did all they could to try to save the life of the teenager, rendering emergency first aid and chest compressions with the help of an off-duty paramedic until the ambulance service and London’s Air Ambulance arrived. They are devastated they were unable to prevent yet another tragic death in the capital.

“I completely understand how alarmed and worried the local community will be at hearing the news this morning and we are working closely with the Homicide and Major Crime Command to solve these murders – two arrests have already been made in the Link Street incident.

London’s Police Commissioner Blames Social Media For Rise In Violent Attacks And Murders

Britain’s most senior police officer has blamed social media for the soaring rate of knife crime in the UK, particularly among children.

After 13 Londoners were killed in two weeks this month, and 6 this month already.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said websites and mobile phone applications such as YouTube, Snapchat and Instagram were in part to blame for the bloodshed.

Trivial disputes could escalate into violence “within minutes” when rivals set out to goad each other on the internet, Ms Dick said.

“There’s definitely something about the impact of social media in terms of people being able to go from slightly angry with each other to ‘fight’ very quickly,” she told The Times.

She said that insults or threats online “makes [violence] faster, it makes it harder for people to cool down. I’m sure it does rev people up.”

She also compared the speed at which youths with no previous or very limited criminal record can become killers to the way some Islamic extremists become radicalised in a matter of days.

So far this year, 32 people have been knifed to death just in London and fatal stabbings in England and Wales are at their highest levels since 2010-2011.

It started with the murder of four young men during New Year’s Eve celebrations and has continued at a rate of one fatal stabbing every three days.

Teenagers as young as 17 are among the victims, while many more have been severely injured in a spate of violence that has sparked large-scale police operations and urgent policy changes.

If the bloodshed continues at the same rate, more than 121 people will be stabbed to death in the capital by the end of the year, a dramatic 50 per cent increase on 2017.
