Fight in a car park

Two sets of young men have picked a fight in the south-western car park of Bridgeway shopping centre.
Two men were injured, with knife wounds to the neck and to the hand.
[Somewhat of a contrast to posts on social media that said 2 men had been killed.]
The fight took place just before noon on 4th April, out of sight of the obvious cameras covering the shopping centre – no doubt, no coincidence.
The car park was closed for most of the afternoon.
Police have been visiting the area in the search for witnesses.

Bridgeway Shopping Centre metalwork removed

More open now the metal structures have been removed.
IMG_0050ma0560h BSC signs and metalwork montageThe metalwork celebrated the railway arches than ran over the site of the current shopping centre.
They were gonna cost more to sand-blast and re-paint than remove; we took repeated soundings with the shops and they supported the move.
The planned removal has been in my reports for a little while now and was rehearsed at tenants and residents’ meetings.
