If u live in a deprived area there is always going to be trouble ...so I work harder to live in a better area ..of course there's trouble everywhere but mostly in places with lower employment and desperate people !

Gypsy Lane Wombwell is not a deprived area, anyone who knows Wombwell will tell you that.
These scum bags target anyone who they think has something they want. To go in armed, especially to a woman and 2 children is appalling. I hope the family are ok and I hope the cowards who did this are caught quickly. When caught they should be dealt with harshly.
