Safer Lighting around Kirkgate Park, Leeds
In January myself and a friend were assaulted by a group of guys. The attack was unprovoked and was unseen. It happened in a place that I have always until then felt safe. I am going to approach my local MP about increasing street lighting in the area so hopefully it deters people from committing this crime again and hopefully allow people to feel safe in their local area.
Kirkgate Park (by Leeds Minster and Mecca Bingo) is a completely unlit park and as provides criminals a veil of invisibility. The area is no longer safe at night time and this shouldn’t go on. I am writing to my MP and police commissioner about increasing lighting in the area and ask for your support in this matter.
Thanks for reading.
