  1. An full open disclosure from the police on the activities in Sandhurst Place over the relatively few years its existed would make very interesting reading.

    • Anyone arrested who is believed to be , or appears to be, under the influence of substances has to be checked out by A&E before taken to custody cells.

  2. But they don’t get put into cells, they’re either just dumped onto hospitals, or,with nowhere to go, taken to a safe area such as supermarket carparks or playgrounds at night, repeated drunken behaviour should end with being sectioned and put into an addiction centre
