Murder Mile

By Giselle Thomas
On December 14, 2016

"Murder Mile" was the nickname given to the streets of London, England's Upper and Lower Clapton because of their high crime rates.

Drug and homicide-related crimes have occured in the area within the last few years. However, it was during the 1990s, that the area's crime levels were at their highest. 

The borough of Hackney is a very diverse, multicultural area. Black British people make up 29 percent of the area while other minorities make up 16 percent of the population.

While crime continues to occur in the area, the levels have decreased in recent years. Residents say this is because of cooperation between police and residents.

Within the last four years, crime has seen a significant reduction, according to a Hackney Government report. This leads many people to question whether the location still deserves the name "Murder Mile."
