Police in Ealing have once again enacted a Section 60 order for the entire borough due to violence levels and fear of impending crime.
An order was also in force yesterday night. This one remains in place until 6am.
It also incorporates Hillingdon borough and parts of Harrow.

Police officers have the power to stop and search individuals for offensive weapons or dangerous instruments. pic.twitter.com/Co6O8PaZL6

Ealing isn’t the only area to see increased use in recent days and weeks. Southwark borough has too.
