New Scotland Yard Sold

The headquarters of the Metropolitan Police has been sold, London's deputy mayor for police and crime has confirmed.

The proceeds from the sale of New Scotland Yard (NSY) are to be reinvested in frontline policing, Stephen Greenhalgh has said.

NSY has been the headquarters of the Met since 1967 but has been sold as part of cost-cutting measures.

Police HQ will now be moved to the Curtis Green building on Victoria Embankment.
