who was it that said the local streets are pefectly safe to walk on ?
THE CCTV needs upgrading.
New CCTV across Thanet was fitted in 2016-17 weather dependent
I don’t suppose that anyone has ever said that the streets of anywhere are perfectly safe.
i was talking about our local streets , not streets across the developed world
same image of many in thanet, they need cash or easily laundered (other people’s possessions)
To support their sponger lifestyle, the attackers are not brave but it needs a brave tdc to sort it all out., Horned out.
so much can be done from local gov but the trend of newly gentrified areas could b having more influence.
I think it happened in an other area !
Really hope the casualty is recovering and step by step getting back to have confidence on tdc streets.
