Waterloo ‘second most dangerous’ London station

London SE1 website team

SE1's two major main line railway stations have the second and third highest number of violent incidents at London stations, according to British Transport Police figures.

Victoria tops the league with 141 violent incidents in 2003/4, but Waterloo is second with 93 crimes recorded and London Bridge is at third place with 80. Waterloo International is in eighth place with 43 violent incidents.

On the London Underground, Waterloo had 37 violent crimes in the same year.

The figures were released to the Evening Standard under the Freedom of Information Act.

"These figures show just how little crime there is on the rail network," said a British Transport Police spokesman.

"Fewer than 100 crimes over 10 months at stations where thousands of people are passing through every day means that they are low crime areas."
