Cash machine stolen in Dewsbury Road ram raid

  1. This time last year wasn’t someone murdered in same spot?:
    Oddly the area is a nice one to live in; certainly in comparison to say London. Has the impact of lockdown driven people into a sort of desperate lunacy? Quite recently another crime with alot of force used not so far up the road at Boots of Crown Point:
    Wonder if that part of Leeds has enough CCTV and security alarms? Would more help? A financially deprived area seems to invite behavior that would shock those in more affluent areas. Its a pity all these crimes and the impression they give of Beeston. For they are far from representative of all the good works being done by people locally.
