Some 27,725 Romanians were arrested for offences in London over the past five years, Scotland Yard said, including 10 for murder and more than 140 for rape.

The figures, published under the Freedom of Information Act, will fuel fears of a crime wave when restrictions on workers from Romania and Bulgaria are lifted in January next year.

Romanians came second only to Poles, who accounted for 34,905 arrests, including 84 for murder and almost 130 for rape.

However, there were some 587,000 migrants born in Poland living in the UK in 2011, estimates from the Office for National Statistics showed, compared with 87,000 Romanians.

pawel_pusledzkiA POLISH father angered by sexual advances from a 60-year-old Torpoint man has been jailed for stabbing him numerous times and causing horrific injuries with a pair of scissors.

Pawel Pusledzki, 27, left the man for dead after the “frenzied attack” at his home in July last year.

He suffered serious injuries to his face and skull, stab wounds to his body, and a severe internal injury after being violated internally with a pair of 17cm-bladed scissors during the attack. The exact details of what happened are too horrific for the Cornish Guardian to print.

Some outer London boroughs – including Enfield, Waltham Forest and Redbridge – have seen their white British population drop by as much as a quarter over the past decade.

The same applies to urban areas around the capital such as Luton, Reading and Bedfordshire.
