    According to news and e-mail message received by Polie, this man and others were waiting at the bus stop after dancing at a night club near by.
    Last year the Council approved licence for a club calld “Scandal” in the area, in spite of local opposition express by the local community the licence was approved……… and this is the result ….. we are attracting to our residential area people with guns that shoot each other…..
    Well Done !!! Great service to the local community ….. This is not an area were night clubs should be.
