"A bad flying day for Valentine banners? I haven't seen a rain graph on Birchington Weather station like the one showing at moment for ages and ages.
Car off road and had to use taxi this morning. This is the story told by driver.
A Central Cars taxi was directed to collect a customer in Millmead last night. When the driver arrived, shortly after 9pm, two young men climbed into the back with hoodies up and scarves over faces. The driver then had a knife placed against his throat and was warned that if he wanted to live he had better hand over his takings. The shocked driver, wisely did as he was asked and handed over £30 of takings very quickly. The two young men then ran off into the estate.
There has been a spate of armed robberies from taxi drivers in the Medway towns recently but this is the first for a long time in Thanet. I wonder if the new computer technology used by Central Cars and Chauffeur puts drivers more at risk than the old radio system with 'controller' directing matters?"
Ed: You are right. Valentine's Day was a complete washout! Is Millmead becoming a 'No-go' zone? What do other readers think or know about this?
