Crime has risen in almost half of London's 32 boroughs in the past year.

The latest Metropolitan Police figures shows the borough of Hillingdon featured the highest crime rise with a 14% year on year hike.

Whilst crime across the capital is still marginally down on the previous year, violent crime has risen 27% over the past year leading to concerns that the most serious crimes are on the rise.
