Shepherds Bush Green Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) officers escorted Matt Baker and Pudsey on a rickshaw from London Zoo to BBC TV Centre this evening. This was the final leg of the journey. The SNT officers provided a cycle escort.
Sergeant Finbar King told me this evening:
"It was a pleasure to assist Matt in his efforts to raise money for Children in Need".I'm told that the officers on the early shift stayed on in their own time to assist and those on nights did a 9hr turn around between shifts to make this work. Just another reminder of wha this remarkable team do to keep our streets safe - say hello next time you see them around the Bush.
"Thank you to the pedestrians, cyclists and motorists on the final leg through central London and Shepherds Bush who showed courtesy and patience despite the slow moving convoy".
