Explosive Mix

There was a stabbing incident at Westgate station at around 4:40 yesterday afternoon, as the local schools were congregating to catch the trains home. I haven't any more details other than the 19-year-old victim is at QEQM, the police have recovered the weapon, which was handed in to a local shop and CCTV footage of the incident is being examined.

It's quite likely that there were a number of witnesses to what took place and I would ask parents who may have heard anything about the incident from their children to contact the local police if they have anything to offer.

This is, of course, the second stabbing incident in 48 hours, the first being a fatality outside the Kabuki night-club in Margate and I'm sure that all residents share my grave concern that what is largely recognised as an inner-city problem, has quite suddenly reared its head in Thanet. I might hazard a guess that the temperature may be a contributing factor, as this, mixed with alcohol, is an explosive mixture on our streets.

Last night, I was walking my dog after sunset along the promenade at St Mildred's Bay and I encountered a  group of teenagers smoking cannabis, drinking lager and stripped down ready to jump off the sea wall for a swim at high tide. I do worry that this will lead to another serious accident/incident one day but I'm sure this is true of the entire Thanet coast and well-known hotspots along it's length.

If you have any details of the Westgate incident, please Call British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 470 of 27/06/11 or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Tenuous link connecting teenagers having fun with totally unrelated stabbing incidents. Why not apply for a job with Murdoch, Simon, he doesn't get many readers either... rofl.

The number of readers each month is clearly shown on the sidebar with the emphasis firmly on quality and not quantity!!

Not sure about the "having fun" with Cannabis and Stella. It might be your idea of fun but it's not mine!

Not mine either, but it was quite clearly theirs or otherwise they would not have been doing it.

Live and let live, is my motto, as long as you abide by God's Law, capiche?

Lets see how tolerant 1,14 is when the "little darlings" congregate around his house leaving fag ends, bottles, cans, rotting kebabs and rubbish. Then there's the swearing, shouting, urinating, screaming, vandalism and those bloody stupid moped things driven by topless halfwits at all hours.
Live and let live is a glib comment when you don't have to deal with this crap in your own street ALL SUMMER!
Get real or shut-up.

If you saw people doing something illegal (ie smoking drugs) then I do hope you called the police Simon.
