Calls to police stations 'are going unanswered'
NEARLY half of calls to police stations go unanswered, according to research.
Liberal Democrat staff telephoned all 141 stations in London and could not get through to 65. The 2007 survey showed 46 per cent of calls were unanswered but in 2003 that figure was 39 per cent.
Dee Doocey, Lib Dem policing spokeswoman on the London Assembly, conducted the research.
She said: "Londoners face silence at the end of the line for just under half the capital's police stations, a disgrace by any standards."
