Answered By: 
The Mayor

I have been informed by the MPS that crime data relating to farms in London can be identified and researched at a local borough level and addressed at Ward Panels through the Safer Neighbourhood Teams.

The key concerns such as incidents of trespass, theft and vandalism (criminal damage) can best be managed and addressed in this way.
