Bromley report says Squeeze Section is only gang threat to borough
A GANG called Squeeze Section is the only one which could pose a threat in the borough, according to a Bromley Council report.
But the document says the threat is not thought to be significant as members mainly offend in other boroughs.
It is said to have emerged from the breakup of Penge Block, which is no longer considered to be an operational street gang.
Teenager Ben Hitchcock was a member of Penge Block and was murdered in a gang fight on June 23, 2007.
The report about how to tackle gangs in Bromley was discussed at a meeting of the council’s public protection and safety policy development and scrutiny committee tonight (November 27).
Police intelligence reports there are no gangs as defined by the Met Police operating in Bromley.
