If anyone sees anything like this going on, I would urge you to speak to the police - Julian Thorne is the local beat officer - his number is 020 7378 1212. He is aware of the ongoing problem and hopefully if he keeps getting feedback, something can be done. The situation is really bad at the moment - I thought I'd try and be a bit more tolerant and went to the park on Tuesday. It was pretty bad with a hardcore gang of drinkers - including the woman with baby in pushchair who used to be in Flat Iron Square
- shouting abuse. One guy who was totally out of it lurched at my daughter who thankfully is too young to know what's going on. What was more worrying was that in the corner where the flowerbeds are, there were three guys hiding in the trees injecting themselves which freaked me out because I didn't see them until I got really close. I will call Julian Thorne tomorrow but if anyone else could do so, this might help - particularly if you have witnessed any of these incidents.
