Rising Underground crime triggers RMT call for jobs rethink Rising Underground crime triggers RMT call for jobs rethink

The number of violent crimes reported on London Underground has risen by more than half in three years, according to new figures from British Transport Police. The RMT has responded with a call for a ‘reversal of job cuts’ on the system, saying that the statistics should be a ‘wake up call’. The rise in all crime was lower, at around 25 per cent between 2015 and 2018, while BTP said the chances of being a victim of crime on the Underground ‘remained incredibly low’.
