and the surrounding areas has experienced some muggings.
If you live in the area, why not have a look at the TNRA (Trinty Newington Estate Residents Association) website and see if your home is included in this estate - even if it isn't, you may still be interested.
TNRA meets with the local police and with Simon Huges and councillors to discuss safety as well as othe issues.
I don't know anything about the unfortunate incident mentioned, but I feel very safe in this area. There are muggers everywhere, but the difference to me is that regular people smile at each and are open and friendly - I feel that if I had occasion to call for help, someone would probably be there for me. Stats don't show that.
