Inside Britain’s ‘roughest estate’ where youths as young as 10 run riot and tear live PIGEONS apart

Residents are living in fear on one of "Britain's roughest estates" where kids as young as ten are said to run riot - even ripping pigeons apart.

Those living in Walsall's Blakenall, West Mids., claim it has fallen into a state of disrepair in the last two years.

They say they are plagued by violence and anti-social behaviour, making them too scared to leave their homes.

And tormented locals are now demanding action following a string of incidents including arson attacks, fly-tipping, thefts, assaults and vandalism.

One local resident, who did not wish to be named, said: "It had got to the point where we are scared to leave our homes even in the daytime.

"The place has just rapidly declined into almost a state of lawlessness since the pandemic.

"The kids are running riot and they find it funny when police arrive.

"People are saying it's the roughest estate in Britain and I'm not sure I could argue with that."

They added: "Shopkeepers are being racially abused and attacked.

"Rubbish gets dumped in the street, fires are started, bus shelters are smashed.

"You see kids walking down the street with knives and smoking drugs - it's just there is just no rules or order here."
