  1. that is scary
    one a fire at the weekend right near me by 2 mins and now it is kicking off again
    people stop being idiots and lets try and be a community rather than a crime!

    • It’s just the ever present less pleasant side of cliftonville, whilst drugs and brothels thrive , left largely untouched by the authorities it’ll not stop. Too many of lifes less fortunate/productive have been dumped and abandoned in the area and there’s litle being done to turn it round.

        • Top of dalby square dealing under the trees, alley between square and athelstan, athelstan and edgar. Walk the roads at night and note the buildings with the lookouts. A current centre of drug dealing and county lines activity is in St John’s road , kids on peds do the running.
