I have used this station 3 times this week and increasingly around 5-6 pm there are groups of people drinking just inside the entrance. Their manner is intimidating and I felt quite threatened walking past. Anyone else noticed this? Can’t understand why the station staff fine do something about it.
One day last week there was a group of 8/9 people, drinking out of cans, smoking dope and being loud and unruly (one i think had just pissed in the corner). I turned to look at them (overwhelming smell) as I exited the station and I was subjected to “what you looking at?”. I don’t want that after a 10 hour working day.
have spotted groups there on several occasions when I've been heading over to Lost Rivers - I do understand why it can feel intimidating. I guess if it's on the pavement then the station staff may feel it's outside of their area... Perhaps following James' suggestion and reporting to the station operator would help. Might also be worth pointing them to this forum as several different individuals have now matched your observation of the problem.
