In 2013, following a community campaign and petition, Jon Cruddas MP successfully protected Dagenham Police Station from closure, when it came under threat from then Mayor of London Boris Johnson.

Anglesey Drive Parking Outrage

Jul 19, 2017

On 13th of July Jon Cruddas MP and Havering Coordinator Fay Hough visited Anglesey Drive, in Rainham to discuss the ongoing parking concerns.
