On a recent visit to the Belgrave area of Leicester I talked to several people who reported that "chain-snatching" was a serious issue in the area. Youths on motorbikes or bicycles snatch jewellery from women in the street and make off at speed. This sort of crime can be very distressing for the victim, over and above the financial loss involved. Sometimes the violence used can be quite excessive. There are real concerns that this type of crime is getting out of control in this part of the city of Leicester.
Here is a short video that I made on the day. I will be following this up.
