Last week Selina and David went to talk with park users and people living nearby about continued threatening anti-social behaviour in St John’s Gardens.
Despite increased police interventions and more Council officers patrolling, the same disruptive group of street drinkers and drug users came back again. There will be more police patrols and, now, action through the hostels team where some of the disruptors live.
Please keep us posted, contact us.
You have also told us and we have seen on our ward walks how difficult Victoria Street can be with an increased number of street people.
We know how hard our charity partners and officers are working to persuade the street population to come in and get help and to ensure the streets are safe.
Our police team need as much evidence as possible to get extra resources for action. If you see anti-social behaviour please report it.
