  • I don't mean violence, but actually getting out there in numbers, hi vizzed up would do the world of good.

  • I’ll let you know if anything comes of it. Hopefully sooner rather than later ✌️

  • Why don't you all do a sting!
    50 riders, maybe 100 for maximum effect.. One rider goes first and cycles over bridge, might get away, next rider and so on... keep circling till they jump out one night and then BOOM 100 riders all turn up and beat the living crap out of them.

  • Ok, you go first?

  • The muggings have been happening consistently since maybe September last year - there was no break for spring or summer in 2019. It does seem to have calmed down a bit in the last couple of months (although there has been an increase in boat break-ins), perhaps because a couple of people were arrested. London Boaters have a fb page - boaters are still reporting masked youths to the police almost every night.

  • Just fit a beater with GPS and let them take it

  • Is this the result of police cuts plus boaters / tow path users being deemed a low priority due to limited political influence? It’s depressing. I have a friend who lives on the canal and worry about it - she has moved out of London to be safer.

  • That looks as if it's new perpetrators trying it again in Springfield. Let's hope this resumption is short-lived.

  • Hackney CID charged two suspects for a series of six robberies, that occurred on the 4th December on the canal path, E9. Units flooded the area and one suspect was found hiding with a knife and mask. His accomplice was identified shortly after. Two robbers off to prison for Xmas.­02940402954842120
