  1. There is Council CCTV cameras on a post opposite this very junction so good footage should have been captured for use in prosecution.
    Where are the promised extra police officers for Margate and Cliftonville though? They need to be seen on the street where they are needed to deal with these issues of thuggish behaviour which is on the increase here!
