This is such a muggers’ paradise
I REFER to the article in The Press on September 1 – “Man found with head injuries near bridge”, where a man was found with serious head injuries and a fractured eye socket.
After a fantastic evening at the Mystery Plays, I walked back over Lendal Bridge and down the steps, under the bridge into North Street.
It was extremely difficult to see the steps as it was pitch black and I tripped at the bottom. It had been raining earlier in the evening and it was slippery.
Fortunately, I managed to keep upright but anyone perhaps not as agile could have been seriously hurt. It felt very eerie without lighting and even though I was not alone I felt very vulnerable. It is the perfect place for muggings and assaults.
