Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Community Safety, Cllr Chris Bond, said: “We have an excellent CCTV network in this borough and that means if you commit a crime in Enfield within sight of a camera you can’t run and you can’t hide.

“We will not allow people to behave in a threatening manner  and we will use out extensive CCTV network to track them down, so I’m delighted we could work with the police and have this individual removed from the streets for the public’s protection.”
