Coppers brought along their classic Morris Minor police car to show off at a community party in Willesden.

Serg Nathaniel Jenkins and Con Kris Laczak attended the Furness park on September 9 bringing with them a fully working model that was used by bobbies in the 1950’s.

Kellie Hill, a member of Kensal Green Streets who organised the day, said: “Our pretty Pocket Park had taken a battering this summer with drug dealers using it to exercise their trade, copious amounts of litter thrown around the park, antisocial behaviour, people using it as a massive litterbox for their dogs and themselves after a night out, and our beautiful wall mosaic artwork was destroyed.

“This was the perfect event to bring our diverse community back together and reclaim the park as a positive bit of green space to nurture.

“All those who organised the event and turned up to get involved are local angels.”
