There are a few extra visitors in that area. Probably just coincidence.

Living near the Triangle, I would suggest that a lack of police around here is one of the probable causes. No deterrent at all for any scumbags who are up to no good.

I see the Branksome gay pub has gone bust and is closed. So some good news there at least.
