MEssage in from Police Inspector Stuart Simpson:
'Over the weekend and into Monday morning there were a small number of incidents that occurred in Islington which were an overspill from Haringey by opportunistic criminal elements who chose to cause disorder and steal.
'We recognise that these incidents will have an impact on the local community but we would like to reassure all our communities that our local Safer Neighbourhood teams are out patrolling as usual on the wards.
'Our response teams will be also out patrolling and responding to calls from the community.We will have additional patrols on across the borough to provide reassurance and to prevent any further opportunistic criminality.
'We have an excellent community relationship with our partners including Islington Council and we are working together to continue to make Islington a safe place to live and work.
'We are appealing to all members of the community to call police on 101, if they notice anything untoward or suspicious. If it is an emergency, please dial 999.
