East European aggressive beggars – one local case

As I came and went from Marble Arch to record a clip on this issue for ITV London Tonight, I saw a woman begging at the bus stop and phoned 101 to report it to police. She was not acting aggressively, but she was on her own in a wheelchair obstructing people queuing in the bus shelter.

Since then a resident has spotted her several times so we are trying Adult Services. The Adult Safeguarding hotline is 0207 641 2176.
