From my experience Philip, weed dealers are not that meticulous and are even quite sloppy in their operations. Maybe something harder?

On 5th Jan 2019 7:52pm, PhilipInCoventry said: Hi all Cheers It's amazing what you see from a bus, double deck or single. That has been in the news of late, with crime-spies, watching for drivers using phones & so on. I may have witnessed a crime taking place in the Stoke area of Coventry, during my commute to UHCW. I am not going into graphic location details, but this may be the plot, involving three vehicles. A weed seller operating from his car. A taller vehicle say a van, the lookout. Then the weed feed vehicle. The seller car parked in a quiet street. The van some distance away, but has vision of the sellers car. Then the weed feed car, parked well out of sight, where the occupant walks to the seller car with each individual supply in between each customer. The lookout van driver coordinates the movements of both customers & supply. Now, either I have a very vivid imagination, or I was witnessing a weed sale. What made me more suspicious was seeing the same scenario in the same location on two consecutive evenings. That was a couple of weeks ago, but not seen it since, well not there anyway. That three vehicle syndrome has all that it needs for criminals to carry out their version of a car-boot sale. So if you see an unusual car parked, where you live, with folks going to it quite orderly, then you see a parked van with someone texting, where it is obvious that their No 29 from the Chinese takeaway would have arrived & been eaten five times over, you might be witnessing a car-boot weed sale - who knows.
I've worked in criminology for forty years, and I would suspect you've got it right. It's amazing how people think that the police can stop it - they can't be everywhere, but the drug pushers can!

The Government has published an index of multiple depravation (1= Most Deprived, 10 = Least Deprived). This is available as a street level Map View. The link is centred on Coventry, but you can zoom in/out to view the whole country. Peter.

Hi PeterB Wave I knew of its existence but I haven't until today ever seen it. Thank you for that. I wonder what data sources have been used. Could it be a ratio of benefit claimants, income taxation, but what else, that is factual? Accountancy has become very plasticard these days, where accounts are made to look like what is expected sometimes.

If the designation for my own house in Bedworth is anything to go by this is not very accurate at all. According to this I should have all sorts of people knocking on my door offering to help me escape the second level of deprivation, yet if they did call they would be disappointed to find a very ordinary 1960's development of semi detached and detached houses plus a few bungalows which are in the main occupied by owner occupiers. A friend's house in Bedworth is also shown in the second lowest level but most people would be happy to live in this 1970's development of properties in the highest price brackets for Bedworth. Perhaps someone just assumes we are bound to be deprived because we live in Bedworth? To me this questions the accuracy of the whole thing.

The Index of Multiple Deprivation is made up of the following components. • Income Deprivation (22.5%) • Employment Deprivation (22.5%) • Education, Skills and Training Deprivation (13.5%) • Health Deprivation and Disability (13.5%) • Crime (9.3%) • Barriers to Housing and Services (9.3%) • Living Environment Deprivation (9.3%) I was surprised that my house (Mount Nod) was shown as least deprived, it is a 1960's estate. But when you think about it the area has good schools and most people have jobs and with few pensioners we probably score well for health and we have a low crime. Income deprivation is a measure of income below the minimum. You don't get bonus points if an area has an above average income. The only thing we are really deprived of is parking spaces. Peter.

Hi PeterB Wave What is so interesting is how red coloured streets are cheek by jowl right next to green streets. That tends to blow the post code strategy for all manner of categories. For example, my motor insurance is £60 more per annum for me living in CV6. Yet my street is yellow, just about half way in the colour chart.

Phil, Deprivation is not the same as insurance risk (if anything poorer neighbourhood = less expensive cars to bump into). There is obviously some zoning going on as the new Amazon warehouse is split over two zones (and nobody lives there). I reckon about 10 postcodes (~600 houses) per map zone and the zone boundaries don't always follow logical housing type boundaries. Allesley is 6th which I found surprising. I would have thought 8-9th (loses points for ill health due to elderly population). Peter.

That naff green escalator that ruined the view along the Precinct has finally gone! (Pic (c) the Telegraph). You can see in the background they have added a new one 'internally' for those with restricted access inside what was the old ramp down to the old West Orchard car park.

As a follow up to this - I'm hearing that the curved walkways from the top of the ramp are going as well. Daftly that will leave us with a 'ramp to nowhere'. Apparently the Council don't have the funds to compulsarily purchase the jewellers underneath to resurrect the original view over Broadgate. BTW I have just added a couple of events in the Events listing for tomorrow and Saturday if anyone is interested.
