Police catch moped muggers

Following a spate of attacks on cyclists in recent weeks, the Metropolitan Police mounted a successful operation to catch the culprits on 25 January.

Cyclists and their luggage had become a target for youngsters riding mopeds on two roads in Islington. The local LCC group compiled a list of the attacks and contacted the police, who have now taken positive action to stop them.

LCC Director, Peter Lewis comments: 'We are really glad that the police have moved to stop these attacks. Our volunteers will continue to keep an eye on things over the next few weeks.
