The Metropolitan Police is to change the livery on its fleet of response vehicles to increase their visibility.

The new Battenburg style design will bring the cars in line with the colours adopted across the rest of the country. The process is expected to take up to three years to complete.

Assistant Commissioner Simon Byrne said: “The introduction of the Battenburg design will make the cars more conspicuous and help keep Londoners safe.

This is based on research sponsored by the Home Office.”

Before going ahead with the project, the Met organised a vote on Facebook and Twitter over a two week period, asking members of the public to choose between the existing design and the new look.

The majority of the 800 who voted came out in favour of the Battenburg design.
