That's moved the problem on to somewhere less middle-class.
Great work West Mercia.

Maybe you prefer to allow this scum to carry on regardless,no matter where they are? The police are on a hiding to nothing with support like that! Wonder if you'd have made that remark if they were your neighbours! NOBODY wants trash like that living near them......I know,i had some near where i used to live and i moved!

I do think this rather sad that it has to be live reported. First a JD Whetherspoon and now a Crack House, I can see Irvin Walsh on his way now to right a book. Malvern you are in the 90's!

Has anyone noticed that the drugs in the picture isn't crack?

And apologies, I was suggesting the Police might have made a bit more of an attempt to catch people red-handed.. you know.. smoking crack or something.. rather than putting a big notice up saying "begone" on the entrance.

I understand it was probably a squat etc. but still.

"yards from a school" ? well the police have known about the activities that was going on at that address for quite a time. They could've and should've acted sooner. They have been to the property a number of times and yet they leave it this long to do anything? When you weigh up all the facts, it's pretty hard not to realise that drugs were being used and sold at this address. I would think that the neighbours have complained for some time only to be told that the police are focusing on the bigger picture. Well i never hear anything about the bigger picture being erased, it is always the sub divisions of the pyramid of drug dealing that i ever hear about. shame on you west mercia police. Too little too late.

How do you know that the police ignored this? That's a big accusation to make. Please give us some facts.

The west side of Pickersleigh grove is far from middle class. It is social housing occupied for the most part by the elderly, the disabled, single mothers and the working poor. Its demographic is identical to the Elgar council estate. Moreover, the residents are living in atrocious conditions in housing that should have been demolished 30+ years ago. 'Ted Elgar' has some serious misperception, or perhaps he is just trolling.
