I have been hearing reports of serious problems affecting retail businesses in the Belgrave area of Leicester. So I went out to the area with a survey form to hand out to the shop managers of the area. Along with Tom, I spoke to several dozen managers and workers, plus passersby. Clearly there is a real problem in this part of the city. The City Council seem to be doing little to address the problem. I'll see what response we get from the survey, then I will be chasing up this disturbing outbreak of crime in Leicester.
Here is a short video that I shot on the day with Tom.
