Blackburn tonight
 
Is anyone else watching the programme on Channel 5 that is giving this area a bad name?

I have just started a thread about it too - gripping isn't it?

PS beat you to it by 3 minutes :D

Watching it now, Gayle.........from between my fingers with my hands over my face.

Hideous, isn't it. :(

Footage taken on Mad Friday (last Friday before Christmas)

Hope there's no Accywebbers on. ;)

It is awful. I used to go out drinking in Blackburn but never remember anything like this.

Then again, I was always the drunk that was curled up in a corner asleep. :D

Recording it, sounds like it could be worth watching. Don't think it can be any worse than other towns I have seen featured. The fighting makes me cringe and a lot of the time the girls/women are worse than the boys/men:o

Don't need to hide behind a wall....Blackburn is the pit's.
I was born in Blackburn and cringe when I hear Straw on his soapbox.
The police can't get a grip because their hands are tied.
The central police station is no longer in the centre.
Bus drivers are assaulted, Taxi drivers are mugged and poor Johnny, according to his brief, didn't mean to do it honest,
Where do the priorities lie? Fixed penalties for smoking in a van or sorting out these would be hardmen and women who think they can get away with murder?
Going out at night to your popular haunt is no longer an option.
Where the hell are we going?

Just watched it. Standard weekend stuff really ( I canít be alone in thinking that ) seen in just about every town the length and breadth of the country. Guess thatís part of the problem that itís seen as standard behaviour.

I seemed to have missed an announcement by the government over the years, as the programme was called CCTV Cities and the commentator referred to Blackburn City centre :confused:

That must have been the assumption by the programme makers, just the fact that it has a cathedral, therefore itís a city.

Looks like they were wrong to assume.

Just looked up the criteria for being a city, wish I hadn't, it's too late at night for that - City Status

The list of cities is here if any one is interested - UK Cities

Most cities are dumps for the dross of society.
Who in their right minds would live in any city centre.
Nowt wrong in being a 'hick from the sticks'
