A group of offenders have played a part in the fight against crime by giving an alleyway blighted by anti-social behaviour a much-needed gardening makeover.

Overgrown trees and shrubs in Waterloo Passage, have been cut back to reduce the level of crime following complaints by traders and residents.

The group, who were carrying out community service, used equipment and materials donated by DIY giant B&Q and the Tricycle Theatre on Kilburn High Road, contributed by allowing them to use their building as a base during the project.

Organised by Brent Council and the police the project was undertaken as part of the Community Payback scheme.

The alleyway will also be given a deep clean and new lighting.

PC Tom Surr, Kilburn’s dedicated ward officer said: “This is a fantastic example of how long-standing problems can be effectively tackled through agency collaboration and community engagement.

“The Safer Neighbourhoods Team will continue to play their part, providing a high-visibility presence to prevent anti-social behaviour and criminal activity in the area.”
