Mackets Lane, where that guy was shot in his car, is less than a mile away from where we live. Fortunately we’re much further away from where the 21 year old was shot in the leg. I wonder if we have to mention stuff like that in our Home Information Pack when the time comes to sell up? (And that time cant come soon enough.)
“15 year old, two bedroom, semi-detached home. Surrounding brick boundary wall gives lower floor ample protection from stray rounds. Upper floors gives unique vantage point for viewing the local morons when they blow up the nearby phone booth.”
