The Casey Review on the Met is appalling to read

Responding to the publication of Baroness Casey's review of the Metropolitan Police, which highlights institutional racism, sexism and homophobia, Caroline Pidgeon said:

This report is deeply upsetting and appalling to read.

The shocking details make it absolutely clear - the Met has failed women and failed Londoners. Beyond the institutional misogyny, the reports of deep-rooted racism and homophobia show little has changed in the Met since the 1999 Macpherson Report.

Opposing City Airport expansion

Caroline Pidgeon has written to Newham Council to formally object to London City Airport's expansion plan, which would see more flights and longer operating hours. Caroline questioned the need for expansion – especially with other modes of transport, and remote working, providing alternatives to short-haul flights – and highlighted the increased noise and environmental damage that the plans would bring, as well as the impact on local transport around the airport.
