'Unexpected' Streatham attack caused delay in police response

Cressida Dick

The "unexpected" nature of the Streaham attack led to a delay in police response, Britain's most senior police officer said.

Responding to questions over how Sudesh Amman was able to stab two people while under close police surveillance, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said such operations are not "man-to-man marking".

Speaking in general about the tactics used, she told the London Assembly Police and Crime Committee: "They are conducting covert surveillance, so they are not of course providing man-to-man marking. They are there covertly and that is a deliberate thing.

"It is inevitable that there could be a time delay before somebody totally unexpectedly does something."

She added: "I wish I could assure the public that everybody who poses a risk on the streets could be subject to some sort of thing that would stop them being able to stab anybody ever, but it is clearly not possible

Streatham: Labour hold

Bell Ribeiro-Addy has been elected MP for Streatham, meaning that the Labour Party holds the seat with a decreased majority.

The new MP beat Liberal Democrat Helen Thompson by 17,690 votes. This was less than three quarters Chuka Umunna’s 26,285 vote majority in the 2017 general election.

Rory O'Broin of the Conservative Party came third and the Green Party's Scott Ainslie came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 4.3 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 57,000 people, roughly two-thirds of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Two of the five candidates, Scott Ainslie (Green) and Penelope Becker (the Brexit Party) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
