  1. I no longer shop in the city centre. There have been several gun-related crimes there in the past few years. Birmingham seems to have been turned into the Wild West. I’d rather go shopping in quieter towns, such as Lichfield, where I feel safe.

  2. years ago town used to be good its too rough now people push past you at the market and try to snatch your bag i dont go there now i dont trust it
