A word of warning. At about 6.30 this evening I was waterbombed from the roof of Douglas Buildings - at the junction of Sanctuary Street and Marshalsea Road. At least two kids were on the roof and there was evidence of previous attacks. Other people were also attacked and I was told that this is not the first time it has happened and that yoghourt pots and bricks had been thrown previously.
Does anyone know who to contact to prevent access to the roof by these hooligans?
Water is one thing, but bricks?

It doesn't really help that the internal doors in the courtyard of the block are either left open or have faulty locks on them. Also roof access is easy - once you get to the roof from one stairwell, you can walk around the roof of the whole building...! This lack of security is the real issue....

exactly so - see my first post "Does anyone know who to contact to prevent access to the roof by these hooligans"
BTW - I've contacted Steve Dutton at Southwark police.

I live on Marshalsea Road and it is horrible walking past places that have been egged and have seen the remnants of waterbombs in places. Last year I was looking for my keys to get into my flat (it was sunday and very quiet) when a teenage boy threw a stone with great force, it hit the middle of my back. He laughed and ran off and I was in shock and in pain for a few weeks. I wanted to do something say something but also didn't know who to contact. I think it is horrible how some kids behave and how parents can allow it.
