    The bit about the narrow subway also doubling as a public path between two residential areas is news to me. I mean, ‘public path’ obviously implies one that is open to all and free to use.

    Yet there are ticket barriers at the entrances, as per the norm at most train stations. So that this mean they always leave at least one set of barriers open at each end? Because otherwise one would need an Oyster card to go through.

    it doesn't double as a public pathway - I've seen loads of people be turned away who want to use it in that way.

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    Air ambulance landed in Brockwell Park by the Cressingham gate Saturday night. Resident was stabbed off of the estate, but managed to get back here before collapsing. :(

    Well, two or three days into the 13-month long roadworks, and there is already a regular all-day long almighty traffic jam on the Norwood Rd- South Circular junction. At some point on Wednesday morning some twat was literally honking for 30-seconds solid, with others joining the chorus also for extended periods of time.

    They're going to have to work out how to minimise gridlocks in the middle of the junction, which appear pretty much inevitable with the current set up. I feel sorry for the poor fuckers living within earshot.

    There's always a twat who thinks leaning on their horn will somehow magically cause traffic blockages to disappear. You think they'd use their eyes, and notice that there are fuck-off big parts of the road blocked off, and those mobile traffic lights in place, but no, they really don't appear to notice.

    Kids have been on half term this week. No school run traffic and lots of people taking time off work. It's going to get much worse next week.

    Belly-dancing and teenage punks are but just two of the acts on this weekend at Feast. Nobody knows how the roadworks are going to affect the event so please do show support if you can.

    If you're thinking of going to see the game tonight at the Railway, almost every seat has already been taken!

    After seven (?) floods in around 30 years, which have cumulatively devastated the lives of some local residents, the Chief Executive who was appointed just weeks before the two most recent floods, has now moved on:

    I’ve been unable to get through on the phone to The Shout House for days including unanswered voicemail requests to call me back, and have also gone past the place a couple of times during opening hours when it should have been open, but wasn’t. Does anyone know if it might be temporarily closed, or was I just unlucky with my timing?

    A few months later, I note that in relation to the 17-year-old child who was shot on Tulse Hill Estate at around 9.40pm on Sunday 16 June 2019, Detective Inspector Ed Facer said:

    “The incident occurred in the street near to the Jubilee Hall Community Centre on the estate. We believe that there may have been a large number of people in the area at the time as an event was taking place at the community centre around the time of the shooting ..."

    Detectives from the Serious Crime Trident Command are investigating the shooting and can be contacted on 101 quoting reference CAD7689/16JUN19.

    Hopefully the person(s) responsible can be apprehended as quickly as possible.

    You seem to be an expert in the matter. Have you been to the police to tell them what you know?

    I did not witness the child being shot last Sunday evening.

    Of course not.

    You are suggesting a link between two events, one of which is the murder of a child.

    If there is some substance to what you have written, and you obviously believe there is otherwise you wouldn't have written it, then it may be of use to the police. Police often need help from the community and what is obvious to you might not be to them.

    I therefore think you should pass this information to the police, detailing why you think it is relevant.

    Otherwise you come across as some faceless weirdo who takes a perverse pleasure in poring over the tragic death of children, providing more commentary than Operation Trident and the Evening Standard combined, but with no desire to improve things.

    It's time to come clean son. Go to the police and tell them what you know.

    Probyn Road's traffic has become fairly awful with those roadworks at Norwood Road. All of the traffic from Leigham Vale is being sent through there. I had hoped that the roadworks might quieten things down, but they have made it a lot worse.

    The first phase of the roadworks, by the stretch of Norwood road where Creative Aroma was, was completed in surprisingly little time- about two weeks- so perhaps they'll finish the current stretch very swiftly too, and move on to a different area for their next excavation.

    As at yesterday evening, the social media accounts of the Metropolitan Police's Tulse Hill Safer Neighbourhoods Team, and each of the Tulse Hill ward councillors - Mary Atkins, Marcia Cameron and Ben Kind - made no reference to this recent attempted child murder.

    Meanwhile, earlier today:

    Didn't know they had created news tickers that actively post in forums.

    Yeah they did the roadworks at the end of Perran Road much quicker than expected so fingers crossed the trend continues.

    Detectives investigating an attempted murder on Tulse Hill Estate outside the community centre where a Father’s Day event was taking place on 16 June 2019 have released a youth on bail.

    Officers arrested an 18-year-old youth on suspicion of attempted murder on 27 June 2019. He was taken to a central London police station but has been released from custody on bail to return on a date in late July.
