More violence in the news, with the BBC reporting that a man suffered serious injuries during an attack in.Surrey Road, Cliftonville, just after midnight.

Kent Police said the 20-year-old victim was recovering from his injuries at the Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital in Margate.

Surrey Road is a little hot spot of trouble.

I live not far from where I think it happened. In fact I can see the spot I think it happened from my bedroom window. I was asked by my Polish housemates as to what the police down the road was about. Thanks to Thanet Life for highlighting this, something I wouldnt know for another good 4 days or so. Im sure itll appear in the Gazette about 2045.

Hope he's alright. As worm has indicated, things are getting heated in that area. What Im hearing is that things arent as bad as they were when the initial dispersal order was put in place (after the stabbings) but that things need to be kept watch on so that the area doesnt become as bad as it was back then.

Anybody in the Cliftonville area with anti-social problems, please contact me ( Similarly anyone with any problems across the isle, please contact me and Ill see what I can do to get your concern dealt with. I cant promise miracles, but I can try.

Should that not read;
"Anybody in the Cliftonville area AFFECTED by anti-social problems"

On second thoughts, perhaps not, you might get slightly inundated with them.....

Good point. Those affected by anti-social problems. That sounds better. Thanks.

Following other recent comments about trouble resurfacing in these areas, I did speak to the relevant people concerning the deterioration of the area once again. Sadly, this serves as fulfillment of my warnings. We must once again be prepared to use dispersal orders, they seemed to provide reasonable, if temporary relief before.
