Police cars will be donned in a 'battenburg' style livery in future to help visibility.

The design is already being rolled out across the Metropolitan Police's fleet of emergency vehicles.

The new battenburg design brings the Met into line with other forces across the country to increasing visibility.

Members of the public voted on Facebook in advance of the decision as to whether they like it - with the result in favour of the new look.

Assistant Commissioner Simon Byrne said: "The introduction of the battenburg design will make the cars more conspicuous and help keep Londoner's safe. This is based on research sponsored by the Home Office."
