Fight on South Africa Road: three arrests

A fight outside Billy's chip shop on South Africa Rd next to the Springbok pub this afternoon resulted in three arrests and one man being taken to St Mary's Hospital with injuries he'd sustained in the violence, according to the police officer I spoke to at the scene.

Nothing particularly major in the incident but it's one more episode which underlines the role of alcohol in violent crime on our streets. The combination of off-licence, betting shop and pub on that row of shops in the shadow of QPR's ground is not a good one.
