These are probably the same two guys I've called the police about numerous times now, once including how I saw a large machete hanging out of the side of one of their trouser bottoms. These little rodents need to be arrested asap. They are everywhere in the Staple Tye, Bush Fair area.

We need more proactive and visible policing in the town. Males covered from head to toe in black clothing , including face coverings are flying around the town day and night. Where are the police ? They need to be stopped, illegal ebikes, scooters and motorbikes siezed and crushed. Not to mention the drugs they'll be carrying

The proactive policing needs to be plain clothed and not obvious But plod can’t be about 24 hours a day absolutely everywhere More wide angle cctv needs to be up, on junctions, shopping parades and known hotspots It’s not an invasion of privacy It’s safety & security

What an utterly pointless comment @Russ - Halfon and his cronies had 14 years to get to grips with stuff like this and done what????

That’s another massive problem created by the hapless Tories over the years their savage cuts to public services has left us Thousands Thousands of police offers short we just simply don’t have enough police to police us and keep us safe anymore Damn Tories 🤬

Maybe it was Robert Halfon and Rishi Sunak. Being unemployed can make you do some desperate things.

We have 20,000 more police but as correctly pointed out they can't be everywhere. Meanwhile these attacks go unchallenged, plus if the public intervene then we are in trouble if the perpetrators get hurt.

Our police are to busy dealing with serious crime like miss gendering someone or supporting a rally about terror or taking the knee or driving rainbow cars

Who feels safe in this town now, many females don't feel safe...

Women won’t be safe in Great Britain anymore! Men can share your private spaces and we are letting unchecked men into this country.

A well aimed vehicle to knock them off the bike would be the ideal solution. Hopefully with a couple of fatalities.
