POOLS of blood were found outside a block of flats by police who were called to deal with a brawl.

Now five people have been arrested after two men suffered cuts to their hands and legs in a block of flats in Southampton.

Daily Echo:

Officers were called to the block in James Street, just after 9pm last night, to what police are calling a “public order incident”.

Residents living in the flats have told how they were confronted with several “pools of blood” both outside the building, on the corner with Golden Grove, and inside.

A 28-year-old man from Portsmouth was treated for cuts to his hands and legs and a 24-year-old man from Southampton was treated for cuts to his left hand.

South Central Ambulance Service was also drafted in and took one of the men to Southampton General Hospital for further treatment to their injuries.

Daily Echo:

Both men, along with three other men from Southampton, aged 24, 25 and 28, were arrested on suspicion of affray and are helping police with their enquires.

I don't think that there is any more statistical likelihood of someone being stabbed or assaulted in this area than in any other, to be quite honest; it's more likely there is a fear of crime in St Marys, Newtown, etc which is out of all proportion to what it actually is.

What's more disturbing is the fact that St Mary Street is host to one building entrance covered in pigeon guano, a building which is about to fall down and probably a multitude of local shops illegally tipping rubbish all over the place. All of which I have pointed out to one of the local councillors down there.

The public health scenario in St Marys must top the list of citizen concerns; not the occasional crimes which could happen anywhere.

A. Your hashtag makes no sense
B. The hashtag should not have a space between it and the word(s) accompanying it. i.e. #learnhowtouseit
C. Good effort for trying to use a hashtag, do keep it up, they are #suchfun
D. I always highlight if a person is from #Skatesville, or if I suspect them to be form there. In this instance there was someone from there, so my followers would have expected me to highlight the fact.

Why so much hate.

My post was factual and not offensive. I think maybe Zexagon has multiple logons so he can vote down people he doesn't like.
