We have a 4-year old child with us and I would like to request some advice on how to reduce the chances of becoming a victim of such an ordeal. If the news articles are anything to go by it is becoming a little scary to think of going there right now but every time I have personally been there I have never witnessed any crime at all thankfully.
We are just another couple and there is nothing specific about us that will make us a target for such criminals and when walking around the streets or using public transport my wife does not wear any such jewelry, nor does she carry any expensive bags with her, that will interest some prying criminals.
We do not walk around holding our iPhones in our hands next to a busy road, we avoid congested places and we do not travel on the Tube during rush hour. And we tend to live around South Kensington but obviously as with any other tourists we do roam around the city.
I am not deterred by the media coverage but do care about our child's well being. What can I do to try to make the trip safer?
One more death since this question was asked less than 24 hours ago and people are busy down-voting it as if it was a poor question to ask.
