  1. I saw one ‘ruffian’ being handcuffed outside Tesco. No sign of any others.
    It looked to me like one of those characters who normally sit outside the shop begging.


  2. It’s a sad state of affairs that Wanstead is now not only full of ruffians but scallywags, ne’er-do-wells, rapscallions, blighters and rowdy reprobates!

    If I see any of them I shall head for the nearest Police Box and call a Constable!


  3. I was absolutely nowhere near this spot about that same time and saw absolutely nothing – glad they caught them – this is getting reported more and more and more
