London's night tube to get 100 extra police as 24-hour service begins
Mayor Sadiq Khan to announce increased patrols amid fears that all-night trains could lead to more anti-social behaviour
Sadiq Khan, the London mayor, is to announce a £3m investment for 100 extra police officers on the night tube, to reassure passengers and communities as the capital prepares for the launch of 24-hour underground travel next weekend.
While many in the capital eagerly await all-night trains, which businesses expect to give an immediate boost to bars and the entertainment sector, an internal risk assessment leaked this year suggested Transport for London (TfL) was anticipating higher levels of rowdy behaviour and assaults. London Underground bosses said the public should feel confident in the safety and security of the night tube and said they would be monitoring the service closely.
