But only apparently - in fact I now reside in Nottingham. Besides I'm just
trying to break the completely untrue rumour that Sunderland has more crime
than Newcastle. If you've ever lived in parts of Benwell and Fenham and
tried to insure your house contents you're bound to find out all about crime
in Newcastle. You also have a good chance of getting burgled at least a
couple of times a year
and, if you're really lucky, kids throw stones and bricks at your windows,
and, if you're even luckier, they throw the stones and bricks at you.
I went to a wedding at a church on Westgate Road a couple of years ago
and we had a rota system among some of the guests to watch the cars.
At a wedding in the same church a few months earlier three cars were
nicked from the street outside while the wedding was taking place.
> I thought Scousers were more likely culprits...
Maybe, but I haven't lived there so I don't know.
I reckon Newcastle is a great place to live but saying it has less
crime than Sunderland is complete rubbish. Everywhere has its
problems and I would say Newcastle has less problems than most
other cities - but it isn't by any means completely without crime.
I'll also point out I lived in another part of Fenham and it was
very nice and relatively crime free.
What has this got to do with football -- not a lot but I thought it
needed to be said.
