Honeypot raided

This is Local London reports that the Honeypot restaurant on Upper Brockley Road has been raided and a man arrested:

A quantity of cannabis was seized and a 55-year-old man arrested for immigration offences.

Neighbouring shop Super Cut recently lost its licence to sell alcohol as the Council attempted to cut down on anti-social beaviour at this location. In this instance, the police were keen to show that they are now pursuing a zero-tolerance policy in the area, after a decade of complaints from local residents about crime related to groups loitering outside the two establishments. This is Local London continues:

Police Sergeant Jon Biddle said: "I am aware of the ongoing and long term issues in Upper Brockley Road concerning anti social behaviour and drug supply.

"Working in partnership with Lewisham Council my team and I are going to be addressing the problems that blight our residents and cause a disproportionate amount of crime and disorder on the ward.

"We will be claiming the streets of Brockley back for the law-abiding majority."
