  1. Shame they weren’t there when the feral youths were there earlier being anti social and smashing bottles in the road. They probably heard the sirens and hopped on the train back to Deal.

  2. I thought Minster was a sleepy little village, but I’m sure a few times recently I been hearing about youths causing trouble and now this. Only been a couple of times, both in evening to get a kebab, straight in and straight out, seemed ok. Whats going on there? They rehoused some scummy families there or something like that?

  4. I remember they used to have a wild west set,on the Minster roundabout.It seems that it has migrated into the village.

  5. What a load of old rubbish. I don’t own guns nor any known to me.

    Trouble will go anywhere WHERE IT’S ALLOWED TO. You try to hide from scummy broke people and vice by way of £1M+ homes in desirable hinterland villages, and they will eventually find you. Not necessarily today, but someday.

    No-one is immune from crime.
