If I were you, and if given the opportunity, I would do an LLM at a top Uni just for personal satisfaction. Employment prospect wise, I don't really know. But your LLM MIGHT just be considered (there is still a possibility isn't it?), and you shall pray that it would.
In the UK, nobody cares about your LLM unless it is from Oxford, Cambridge or Harvard. Normally only the LLB matters. And doing from London Met will destroy any chance of actually working as a lawyer.

Of course, if the OP is content to spend her life as a paralegal, doing secretarial work, then the London Met may be adequate.

Nobody really cares about your LLM even if it is from Oxford, Cambridge or Harvard (and just for your information, Harvard isn't even the top US law school: Yale has been way out in front for decades but it has such a tiny intake and is so much more selective everyone who knows nothing harks on about Harvard) if you want to be a solicitor. The Bar seems to view LLMs as perhaps more relevant, although to be honest I think most people who do an LLM before going to the Bar are probably just doing it because they failed to get pupillage in the first round...

Pretty scummy, but not as bad as "Lundun Meht-a"

Such cynicism Lewis! What about the pursuit of knowledge for knowledge's sake? Or that aspiring barristers think it will boost their applications (which for instance a BCL definitely does). Otherwise, basically agree with everything that has been said in that post.
