Sorry, I have not seen the news.

Can someone give more information?
Was this all the UK or just London?
 
1000 muggings a day in London
It said 7.4 attacks per 1000 residents last year in the BBC report.
Where does the 1000 muggings a day come from?
The date on the report is todays date but David Blunkett Home Secretary???

Re: 1000 a day

This is very old, it is stating that David Blunkett is the Home Secretary, and that Oliver Letwin the Shadow HS.
David Blunkett was HS in the early years of Blairs government........
If I managed to pick up an old link, apologies!

You are correct it is an old link I would think it's much worse now due to 13 years of wishy washy socialist sentencing.Unfortunately Ken Clarke doesn't seem to be willing to address this situation with his softly sofly approach on sentencing.

There is a report on the BBC website which states
"It is unacceptable that each day on average more than 26,000 people fall victim to crime and the police report stubbornly high levels of violence - on average 1,000 people are injured each day."

This was in the year ending June 2010 in England and Wales, which, although is unacceptable, sounds more realistic.

Crime in England and Wales falls by 8%

The report is dated 10th October 2010, so is old news.
