Low levels of police on the beat has been partially blamed for the scourge in violence.

According to City Hall figures police coverage in London is at its lowest rate in 20 years with 3.3 police officers for every thousand Londoners – the lowest rate since 1998 and 19 percent below 2010.

Local leaders need to be more successful in lobbying the government for extra money for policing, Mr Khan said.
