North East Lincoln City strikes again! In my opinion the section of the city with
the highest, no pun intended, amount of crime.
Not long ago, we were mulling over the crime rate in the city, and how the
infamous North East had been quiet lately, possibly with the majority of perpetrators having since been arrested, and look now- my faith in human
nature has been restored. The North West wasn’t exactly a safe zone either.
