London’s murder rate is more than twice what it was a year ago after three homicides were reported last weekend.

Murder investigations were opened into the fatal stabbing of 15-year-old cyclist Alan Cartwright and the deaths of a man in his forties and 4 year old girl at a flat in Notting Hill.

Compared to 12 homicides occurring in the months of January and February in 2014, during the same period this year there have been 25.

The Deputy Mayor of London Stephen Greenhalgh, still maintains London is a ‘safe place to live.’
