Bexleyheath and Crayford MP David Evennett has helped launch a campaign for people with learning disabilities to stay safe in public places.

He joined Bexley Mayor Councillor Sharon Massey and Council leader Councillor Teresa O’Neill on March 14 in Broadway Shopping Centre.

The scheme has been developed with the police, in conjunction with charity Mencap, to provide safe havens at 170 shops and businesses across the borough for people with learning disabilities.

Stickers will be put up alerting those if they feel assistance to pop in.
