Knife fears prompt schools to use ubers to get kids home

10 Nov 2018


It's been revealed in The Sun that schools in London are using Uber vehicles to transport children home from school after fears about Londons knife crime epidemic.


With 119 murders in London, with many of the victims under 18, there is a growing fear that gang related violence outside schools will see a rise in that figure.


Schools are now using Uber minicabs as well as escort children to bis stops and staggering school finish times, to try to combat the problem.


Safe havens have also been set up in shops near schools across London, and the government has pledged £150,000 to expand the safe haven scheme.


The Metropolitan Police are also updating schools on the latest gang feuds in their area.
