Met police to sell its HQ
THE Metropolitan Police is planning to sell its headquarters to help save £500m over the next two and half years.
New Scotland Yard in Victoria, central London, would be put up for sale under proposals designed to deliver savings and boost frontline policing.
Police stations across London would also be under threat, with five already approved for sale, as the force seeks to dispose of a third of its estate.
The plans were revealed to the deputy mayor for police and crime on Tuesday.
