Not good news. Hope it's not too serious and a speedy recovery is made. The police are the real heroes on the streets.

Just a point to note, Nationwide is a building society not a bank.

I was at the scene and i must admit that the officers reflective coat had quite some blood on it.

The scene was then secured and the roadblocks put in place.

I saw a woman being put into the back of a police car.

I hope the officer makes a speedy recovery.

To be fair, cuts to the head can bleed a disproportionate amount because of the lack of depth.

Let's hope this is the case here.

Try spending some time in some of the nastier council estates in London and then I'll listen to you.

Unless you lived in New York you won't have been to the worst parts; all large towns and cities have them. At least all the criminals in Boscombe don't own a gun because it's 'their constitutional right'.

Nasty place outside Nationwide in Boscombe! That beggar and his dog caused grief to so many passers-by I witnessed a couple months back. Hopefully it was him who was arrested. Utter scumbag!

Oh, and I have lived in New York (Brooklyn and The Bronx) and that part of Boscombe is by far the worse. Of course NY can be dangerous, but they have something over there that is lacking here, RESPECT!

But I'll give you that, London is full of disrectful chavs and wannabes gangsters too.

In the US this typr of crime is called "Battery on a LEO (Law Enforcement Officer) and is a mandatory felony. Meaning up to 5 years in prison, and that is 5 years. Not 2 1/2 and out with "good behavior".

Let's see what happens here...

I havent heard so much rubbish about Boscombe being more dangerous than New York. So a policeman gets knocked over and is unfortunately injured in the fall and that constitutes the area being described as a place Ross Kemp would visit to make a documentary. Some people really ought to grow up a bit.

Best wishes to the policeman concerned, and hope he recovers soon and gets back out there supporting the local community.

I think you'll find its libel or libellous.
I expect the male copper was 5 foot tall and his female 4 foot 6 inches. About time they brought back the old height and physical criteria to recruitment of officers. They are not allowed to patrol on their own anymore for safety reasons, but even in pairs they are not a force to contend with more often than not. Maybe they should patrol Boscombe in sixes?

roguetrader, thanks for the spelling correction. Everyone has the right to be equal no matter who or what they are let alone height or gender. I bet you would not care how tall the policeman or woman was if they attended your business or property. Especially if you were under attack or being robbed in the middle of the day or night ????

I work there, for the time being as the company I work for will more than likely be closing us down. Not because of the economic climate but because of what Boscombe is.Day in day out we deal with abusive drunks and those on drugs. Our shop has been trashed and had many things stolen, we're a big retail name and this might just be the final nail in the coffin.

I saw the guy concerned this morning when I turned up for work at 8, drunk and being abusive to passers by. He was asked to move on by the Police at around 9am.

Boots is also set to leave Boscombe, the place has a bad name and for these reasons. The council seem to think the place is getting better, Chris Wakefield must be taking what gets sold. Boscombe is not a destination for shoppers, it supplies those who live there and as such no big names will want to move in, they are all leaving. It will be for the long term a place where those who use , buy or sell drugs will live along with drunks and the sex attackers dumped behind Iceland will live. If this person did what he did to a Police officer, what will he do to me at work or you walking along the street?

The Police as usual did an excellent job and service to anyone who needs immediate assistance (including a member of their family). Like anything they need to scale any request for assistance or action. People need to be more specific on the need for urgency. Scaled responced is measured by all the emergency services that we are so LUCKY to have access too. If you thnk its bad here then visit other non EU countries and see what happens....... Especially when you need immediate help!!!

What an absolutely ridiculous thing to say. Everyday these people respond appropriately to calls from all walks of life , more so to people less deserving of such a service because they have to. I take it you won't ever be calling on them in an emergency then?

Boscombe has high rates of these people due to low rents and high HMO's areas like the crescent churchill gardens and upper reaches of sea road have become easy places to house these people and they no respect for honest hard working people who actual like Boscombe for its bohemian community atmosphere. Things will become worse as cuts to benefits and enforced payments to council tax from government cuts coming this April. The regeneration of the area will never happen while the council MP and agencies hide there head in the sand face the facts this will be the norm for the area for the next decade i feel sorry for the police who are the thin blue line who are placed in the font row to try and mange this social unbalance

If someone assaluts a police officer, they can look forward to many years in a state prison. There are no 'social reports' to worry over.

It helps focus the mind of criminals to know that the law will be carried out to its fullest degree.

Sooner or later we will come to our senses and substantial measures will be put in place to deal with the substantial problem that is Boscombe.

This district of Bournemouth is disgusting with a significant number of empty shops, addicts, drug dealers and criminals.

First of all, we need to have armed patrols in the area. Community policing does not, has not and will not work in this area. Secondly, our local authority needs to stop investing millions in surf reefs and demolishing perfectly suitable buildings and instead use the money to compulsory purchase all of the slum homes in the district. Those properties can then be brought back under local authority control and used to house decent hardworking people in need of social housing. Along with other supportive measures this would really help to raise the standard of the area. Once this has been achieved, we then need to have a per 1000 cap on the number of current or recovering addicts in the area.

I am sorry but there are some **** decent people in Boscombe who deserve a lot better than this. I am sick and tired of a potentially very nice area being ruined by addicts and their cronies. On a personal note, to the very next alcohol or drug addict who hassles me whilst I am using a cash point I will not hesitate to use my 6' 5" 19 stone force to defend myself.

To the police officer who was injured today, my warmest sympathies are with you and your family and I wish you a speedy recovery.

Lets, kick the addicts and drug dealers out, deal with the slum housing and take back Boscombe for the people!!!

There is no point in arguing whether Boscombe is worse than or better than somewhere else. Isn't the important point that there is a way we want life to be and then there is the way it is and if they don't match up we need to know why not. By and large most of the issues in Boscombe cannot be tackled by residents and businesses, the issues are the responsibility of our Council.
Police numbers have dropped, Councillors tell businesses to talk up Boscombe and there is an agreement between the Council and the Echo to talk positive - so all the positive spin matched against the reality only serves to produce even less trust that the Council will ever aid Boscombe.
The situation in Boscombe has not happened in the last few years - it started in the 1960's and became completely apparent that the Council needed to put measures in by the 1970's ....they have failed miserably to do so and continue in their breathtaking failure of Boscombe.
Every time I think about the £3.2 million more the Council intend to spend on Boscombe beach and yet do nothing about central Boscombe I feel really angry.

Don't take this personal, but if you have walked thru Boscombe daily and sometimes at night for the past 20 years and have never seen anything you are delusional. There's no other word for it.

I have walked thru Boscombe in the day and sometimes in the night on and off during the past 15 years and at least 25% of that time I have seen some sh*t.

Are you sure you are talking about West Boscombe, Bournemouth, England? Or is that some other Boscombe, perhaps in Canada or Australia, or some other old English colonial outpost?

I'm dumfounded!

Be as dumbfounded as you like, because i do walk through every day and some nights. Yes there is some stuff going on sometimes, but I see the same in any town I walk through in the country. I just dont go out terrified of shadows. Perhaps you ought to visit some other towns or other parts of Bournemouth. Seen similar things happening in Westbourne, Southbourne, Lansdowne, Charminster, even going past the Muscliff Youth Centre a couple of years back

Attitudes like the last 2 comments above, especially the last one ("if you don't like it hear **** off to where you feel more safe like mars because you will get bother where ever you go") is exactly why these types of news stories will continue on...

why oh why can't you just accept we here in Boscombe are on a downward spiral that is out of control. We've had someone shot in the face, other murders, a police officer who has just been physically attacked, and yet STILL "locals" have their head in the clouds.

What WILL it take to reverse the process and make Boscombe as safe as possible and an pleasant experience to venture in??

We're talking about a quality of life and safety/security in REAL life here, not hiding behind some computer givin' it the large, and worst of all, defending a scum of the earth society that is Boscombe. Which, trust me, I frequent, and will not hesitate to fight back, as have done many times in the past, against people who may mistake me as someone like you's lot on here.

I don't take sh*t from anyone, and I'll take on any scumbag "rudeboy" and smack the filfth out their mouth in Boscombe.


Trust, I am originally from London and came here 15 years ago to get away from nonsense like this for a reason. To give my family a better life.

Suggest you change your outlook and wise up.

One thing that seems to unite people on the Echo's discussion site is their disdain for Boscombe. The usual rants have now become tiresome and predictable. As soon as I saw an item about a crime in Boscombe, it wasn't difficult to gauge the sentiment, without even looking at the comments.
Look, it's clearly an area with a lot of social issues, with the inevitable high crime rate. We know all this. But can't we just stop sniping at the place?
Or better still (and this will tax the brainpower of many contributors to this thread), come up with a positive comment on how you think Boscombe can overcome its reputation.

No one has forgotten...but keep it in perspective. it still remains as one small area where this happened.

Crime like this has happened in many other areas - Winton, Bmth town centre, Lansdowne, Charminster, Kinson, Poole, Parkstone. So you witness this - and I quote 'EVERY SINGLE NIGHT' ??? Evidently not quite bad enough for you to move away!

Now why don't you get really rude and personal and clarify which part of Boscombe you consider a 'ghetto and a dump'? Boscombe Central, Boscombe East, Boscombe Manor, Boscombe Spa?
Or are you really ignorant to the fact that there are many areas to Boscombe?

How refreshing to see comments from someone who actually lives there and tells the truth!

Of course there are some decent areas of Boscombe - by the beach, Bosc Manor etc. etc. but when most people talk about Boscombe in the context of this news story and general crime etc. they are usually referring to the area you describe - ie Christchurch Rd from the precinct down to the gardens including Walpole Rd, The Crescent and surrounding Roads. Anyone who denies that those areas are dreadful is a total fruit loop!

Nat West. I have a business account there and had to deposit some cheques (so couldn't do online banking). As to where I live - right by Portchester School (now Harewood College). Any more questions you'd like to ask?

And Boscombe is still a dump!!
Bmth Mum - you haven't answered my earlier question:

Now why don't you get really rude and personal and clarify which part of Boscombe you consider a 'ghetto and a dump'? Boscombe Central, Boscombe East, Boscombe Manor, Boscombe Spa?
Or are you really ignorant to the fact that there are many areas to Boscombe?

Oh, you did say you rarely come to Boscombe, so I gather the answer must be the latter.
I must have posted the above comment at the same time you posted yours - it contains answers to your questions.

Do you have untapped resources? A
force inside calling you to higher things?
You may surprise yourself as you felt,
on the shelf not wanted or needed. Love
can be so many things, romantic idyllic
unobtainable, or practical caring
supportive. Step out in to the world and
touch the needy lonely and sick with a
heart so full of love. You know its better to give than receive. shine your
light in the world as Jesus did! Blessings will be upon you! A butterfly is in your hand, its wings are beating,
desperate for freedom. Be careful what you wish for it isn't a;ways right as you find the path to heaven is littered with broken heart promises needs not met, disappointments loss and hurts. Let the butterfly go and it will soar into the sky, imagine that's your aspirations released into the world but try to steer yourself onto the
right path, like a flight controller of a
plane!

Of course there are some decent areas of Boscombe - by the beach, Bosc Manor etc. etc. but when most people talk about Boscombe in the context of this news story and general crime etc. they are usually referring to the area you describe - ie Christchurch Rd from the precinct down to the gardens including Walpole Rd, The Crescent and surrounding Roads.

Yes thankyou. I have just read your answer. So if you admit that there are 'decent' areas in Boscombe, please take back your choice of 'ghetto' and 'dump' in generalising that ALL Boscombe is the same. It is truly offensive to many people who live in what you describe as the 'decent' areas.

Also, if you live near Harewood College, wouldn't it be 'safer' for you to go to the Nat West in Southbourne Grove - err - I forgot - isn't that the bank that was held up by gunpoint recently?

So because we don't agree with you we must be liars??? Just when I thought you couldn't be any more ignorant you prove me wrong!

I live next to the Crescent - so within your definition of Boscombe. I could count on one hand the amount of crime I've seen on my road. I've seen a few incidents on Christchurch Road over the years but to be honest mainly people having loud arguments or shoplifting one or two cans of lager. Once I was walking along there at 3am and there was some blood on the floor (which I found out later was from a fight between young lads) but I've never once seen anyone having a proper fight or being violent towards others.

But hey don't let the TRUTH from someone who also lives there get in the way of your bigoted opinions. I'd hate for you to realise you're wrong and ignorant.

To be fair, cuts to the head can bleed a disproportionate amount because of the lack of depth.

Many years ago it was a brilliant vibrant shopping centre. There was no need to go anywhere else as everything could be found in Boscombe.

Then it started to decline which is a shame because there are some quirky little shops still there - ye olde sweet shoppe being one of them - and restaurants. It would be wonderful if it could be restored back to the way it used to be but I doubt that will ever happen due to several reasons.

If it had been policed properly from the outset (zero tolerance) it would still be a great place but unfortunately the criminals/drug dealing fraternity spread the word to all their mates to come and live in Boscombe and they have ruined it.

Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that making 'judgmental statements' as you put it, is rather different from personally insulting an individual - something I have never done on this site.

Commenting in a general sense is rather different and perhaps you would do well to learn the difference.

What utter rubbish. So you think it is acceptable for an individual to brand a whole town 'a dump' and it's community 'dregs'. Yet you think it is not acceptable for that person to be challenged in a way that they seem fit to challenge others? How do you consider that a fair, responsible and balanced debate?

Perhaps my comment appeared a bit harsh - which I can see myself now in hindsight. I did not, and would not ever intend to hurt any decent law abiding hardworking person and by 'dregs' you know very well the types of people I was referring to and I stand by what I said about those types.

You also insinuated that just because I praised ye olde sweet shoppe that I was suggesting that other businesses should fail. What nonsense! I would never want that. It does seem as though you were looking for an argument when there wasn't one. I am entitled to my opinion just as you are to yours but you will not find me insulting you (or others) just because I happen to disagree with them. That is unacceptable.

Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that making 'judgmental statements' as you put it, is rather different from personally insulting an individual - something I have never done on this site.

Commenting in a general sense is rather different and perhaps you would do well to learn the difference.
I have no reason to 'insult' you at all, it's a shame you took my comments that way. May I suggest you view them as character observations and perhaps guidance - you are without doubt an 'interesting' subject. Nothing to insulting in there I trust??

I am certainly not looking for an argument.

I agree that there is a problem in Boscombe and there is an ELEMENT of the community which are very questionable but I think it is irresponsible to pass judgements sweepingly as the majority of people who live and work there are undoubtably decent people and very understandably will find your previous comment insulting.

Keep up...the subject of the poor officer was exhausted ages ago. We moved on to wondering why, if you have such a miserable existence having to suffer what you say you see every single night from your window" - I'm wondering why you never answered my question - that if it's so awful, why are you still living here after 10 years???

How refreshing to see comments from someone who actually lives there and tells the truth!

Of course there are some decent areas of Boscombe - by the beach, Bosc Manor etc. etc. but when most people talk about Boscombe in the context of this news story and general crime etc. they are usually referring to the area you describe - ie Christchurch Rd from the precinct down to the gardens including Walpole Rd, The Crescent and surrounding Roads. Anyone who denies that those areas are dreadful is a total fruit loop!
So because we don't agree with you we must be liars??? Just when I thought you couldn't be any more ignorant you prove me wrong!

I live next to the Crescent - so within your definition of Boscombe. I could count on one hand the amount of crime I've seen on my road. I've seen a few incidents on Christchurch Road over the years but to be honest mainly people having loud arguments or shoplifting one or two cans of lager. Once I was walking along there at 3am and there was some blood on the floor (which I found out later was from a fight between young lads) but I've never once seen anyone having a proper fight or being violent towards others.

But hey don't let the TRUTH from someone who also lives there get in the way of your bigoted opinions. I'd hate for you to realise you're wrong and ignorant.
Well, I don't live in Boscombe and in the last six months I have been aware of someone being shot in the face and killed, three serious fights (one of which I reported to 999), a cop being beaten, two major drugs raids and a drug addict being wrestled to ground by police for threatening to stab someone in the precinct in the middle of the day. I have also seen first hand that the area is absolutely littered with prostitutes as well as street dealers (unless you have a high concentration of people in the area that like to cycle round on push bikes in the middle of the night).

Boscombe has a shocking reputation, it is dirty, down market and full of rehab centers and slum housing (which has featured in television documentaries). Even a police officer I once spoke with said it was a dump. On a typical day the precinct is full of down and outs shouting their mouths off. A lot of the shop units are empty and are advertised with long periods of free rent due to landlords not being able to let them. I don't doubt for a minute that there are decent people in the area running good businesses but for a district of a seaside town the area is an absolute disgrace!!!

If you're going to moderate this site then do it fairly and responsibly.
If you do not know why your comments are being removed then you should not be leaving comments as you obviously do not understand the set up
Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that making 'judgmental statements' as you put it, is rather different from personally insulting an individual - something I have never done on this site.

Commenting in a general sense is rather different and perhaps you would do well to learn the difference.
I have no reason to 'insult' you at all, it's a shame you took my comments that way. May I suggest you view them as character observations and perhaps guidance - you are without doubt an 'interesting' subject. Nothing to insulting in there I trust??

How refreshing to see comments from someone who actually lives there and tells the truth!

Of course there are some decent areas of Boscombe - by the beach, Bosc Manor etc. etc. but when most people talk about Boscombe in the context of this news story and general crime etc. they are usually referring to the area you describe - ie Christchurch Rd from the precinct down to the gardens including Walpole Rd, The Crescent and surrounding Roads. Anyone who denies that those areas are dreadful is a total fruit loop!
So because we don't agree with you we must be liars??? Just when I thought you couldn't be any more ignorant you prove me wrong!

I live next to the Crescent - so within your definition of Boscombe. I could count on one hand the amount of crime I've seen on my road. I've seen a few incidents on Christchurch Road over the years but to be honest mainly people having loud arguments or shoplifting one or two cans of lager. Once I was walking along there at 3am and there was some blood on the floor (which I found out later was from a fight between young lads) but I've never once seen anyone having a proper fight or being violent towards others.

Unless you lived in New York you won't have been to the worst parts; all large towns and cities have them. At least all the criminals in Boscombe don't own a gun because it's 'their constitutional right'.
Nasty place outside Nationwide in Boscombe! That beggar and his dog caused grief to so many passers-by I witnessed a couple months back. Hopefully it was him who was arrested. Utter scumbag!

Oh, and I have lived in New York (Brooklyn and The Bronx) and that part of Boscombe is by far the worse. Of course NY can be dangerous, but they have something over there that is lacking here, RESPECT!

But I'll give you that, London is full of disrectful chavs and wannabes gangsters too.

In the US this typr of crime is called "Battery on a LEO (Law Enforcement Officer) and is a mandatory felony. Meaning up to 5 years in prison, and that is 5 years. Not 2 1/2 and out with "good behavior".

Let's see what happens here...

Would you like some perspective for your comments? Boscombe & Springbourne alone has a population of 27,000 people. When you deal with THAT many people you will see crime, it's a fact of life. And Boscombe probably has more crime than a nicer more affluent area but it's not some hellish cesspit.

In November 2012 151 MORE crimes were committed within 1 mile of Bournemouth town centre than Boscombe town centre. This includes 24 more violent crimes in Bournemouth and 6 more drug related crimes. So if we're going to worry about a part of Bournemouth's crime levels perhaps we should look to the town centre? Or does that not fit with your narrative?

Also you say "for a district of a seaside town the area is an absolute disgrace". Why does the fact Bournemouth's a seaside town have anything to do with it? Would anti social behaviour and crime be more acceptable for you if it was 10 miles or so further in land? The location of the town has nothing to do with it -you get criminals everywhere and unfortunately for you that includes Bournemouth.
