  1. Just down the road from where I live … shocking! Not surprisingthough I have to say, unfortunately.
    I have lived here for 6 years, and I have noticed a dramatic change in this area over the past 2 to three years, especially.
    I personally do not feel ‘safe’ in my own house anymore.
    I have even resorted to locking my front gate, even when inside my house, to feel safer.
    So many ‘lowlifes’ hanging around the area now.
    A great shame, as it was once a lovely place to live

    1. I agree with Lou things have got worse in this area. I keep my doors locked and always leave a light on if it’s dark.. No longer use cash point at Tescos as fed up of getting asked for money by beggars who sit right next to it. Don’t walk to shops after dark. Often see various people hanging about who from way they behave seem to have had far to much to drink or used some drug – spice – terrible

      1. every time i go to tesco at least four people ask for money or cigs ,at one time i did give the odd bit of change or a cig but they started taking piss ,i told one of them i would see what i had when i.came out and did he wait for.me oh yes ,one of the reasons i dont go much now

  2. Regarding Trescothick and people begging a mate told a beggar outside Trescothick he’d no money only his bank card on him to which the beggar asked him to draw him some money out of cash machine to give to him !!! Unbelievable !
