POLICE officers from the borough have had a close shave to help raise money for injured soldiers returning from war.
On November 11 the hairy men, from Brent Borough's E Team North, shaved off their beards and moustaches to help boost cash for charity Help For Heroes.
The 12 officers collected sponsorship and those who took part had to pay £10 to shave off their grizzly stubble.
PC Glen Riley, PC Martin Edwards and Sergeant Suzanne Hopper also took part in a charity bike ride from Wembley Police Station to an army rehab centre in Surrey. So far the team has raised more than £1,000 for the charity.
Sergeant Paul Riley, from E Team, said: "The idea of raising money from officers shaving off their beards and moustaches came to me when a member of the team suggested another member grew a beard to see what he would look like.
"He then asked me for permission to grow a beard. I said yes as long as he was prepared to shave it off for charity. I then thought it would be a good idea to get the whole team involved. “They have done an excellent job at raising money."
