As someone who lived in Manchester for 16 years before moving to around York I’m amazed this even made the news. This is just evidence that York is an incredibly safe city. It’s not a good thing that this teenager was threatened, but they were THREATENED, not stabbed, not injured, scared witless probably, but they’ll recover. I loved Manchester, and worked in the fracture clinic there and was faced with a wide variety of gun shot and knifing wounds, frequently. Be thankful that you love somewhere where this is worth reporting
And I get slagged off for my hatred of chavs?
It’s getting worse 🙁
Safest city lol
