Some folks need to go for a walk in the town and open their eyes. This isn't commonside road. So sorry Kevin but the ones you seem to be hinting at aren't necessarily to blame.

Why do you think that is Kevin? They hate to stir up tensions from certain communities, so they will avoid any evidence of certain culprits.

This picture is definitely Harlow Common. So can people stop tying to stir up hatred towards Travellers. It is actually an offence under the law. Hopefully, Essex Police will ask the editor for details.

It is not an offence David to display the correct evidence of an offence. It is however an offence to blame any group/person without evidence. That's not whats being done here, no one has stated that it was tge traveller community. We are merely stating that the correct location should be displayed, which just happens to be near a notorious traveller site.

Highlighting Fern Hill Road/Lane is an obvious reference to the Traveller site, whereas the photograph is evidence that the offence took place in Harlow Common. If people feel they are not inciting hatred to Travellers, then have the courage to display your real names including surname.

Why would you want people's anonymity to be removed David? What purpose would that serve, or was that a carefuly construed thrat to people's safety? Perhaps essex police should be taking your details?
