Security guards hired to patrol Surbiton Hospital site

Security guards have been hired to patrol the former Surbiton Hospital site after police received reports of anti-social behaviour and thefts taking place.

Last month, boards were erected around the Ewell Road site as work began on demolishing the hospital to make way for a new primary school and healthcare centre.

However, the construction site has proven to be a hotbed for anti social behaviour, with residents reporting a number of incidents to the police over the past two weeks.

There have also been reports that people have been targeting the site to steal metals and cables.

The Surbiton Hill Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) have been asking residents to stay vigilant and to report any suspicious activity, especially after 6pm.

They have also increased the number of patrols in the area.

As a result the South West London Health Partnership - who are developing the site on behalf of NHS Kingston - have hired 24 hour security to monitor the site until construction is complete.

Anyone who witnesses anything suspicious around the hospital site, should contact PCSO Dan Harris on 0208 721 2518 or email
