Crime on the IOW seems to be increasing. 2/3 years ago front page news was ‘rubbish bin pushed over in Newport’ now we have drugs, so many drug dealers, stabbings, probably over drug debts and so many accidents involving cars. Speeding is out of control, some think the IOW roads are racetracks and the speed limits don’t apply to them (total ars****es). Crime here is slowly creeping in. Such a shame because the island is a beautiful place to live. God helps us once the Pennyfeathers development is full of overspill scum and troublemakers from the mainland.

I fully agree with your sentiments until you say the development will be full of scum etc and etc.
I moved to the Island in the 80’s to get away from one crime wave location, and unfortunately, the Island is slowly but surely catching up.
I do hope the courts hand out suitable sentencing that will deter these people from committing crimes again. Not sure they will.
