Perhaps if the Echo used Bournemouth based journalists the writer if this article would know that Branksome Hill Road is not in Meyrick Park !
Doubt if the police will find many witnesses coming forward in a quiet road at that time of the evening. Most people sadly don't want to get involved for fear of incriminating themselves. C'est la vie....

Dorset police won't do anything... It's all show... They arrest people for reporting a crime and do nothing when a crime is being committed. When witnesses are being threatened they turn their backs but will send 3 police cars to arrest someone for stealing a packet of biscuits... Yes! They really did!
