Police activity against EU rough sleepers

I had the opportunity for a quick word yesterday with Superintendent Liam Harrington about the removals of EU aggressive beggars and rough sleepers over the last couple of months. The new regulations allowing removal and a 12 month re-entry ban for EU nationals not exercising their treaty rights to look for work or study are being used, along with the Vagrancy Act. However, these powers are not a complete solution. Morning patrols are still taking place around Park Lane with Home Office Immigration Enforcement and UK Border Agency officials. Residents and businesses are encouraged to email Sgt Ken Taylor or phone 101 if they see any of the problem group, particularly as the weather gets warmer.
