Scotland Yard is planning to abandon street signs appealing for witnesses to crimes because of concern that they generate public anxiety while adding little or no benefit to police investigations.

Senior officers are also concerned that once signs are put up they are often forgotten about, with the result that some have remained on public view long after the offences were solved. Follow-up signs, thanking the public for help when someone has been convicted after an appeal are now being considered.
