    • It is interesting that you have used the proposed (rather than existing) foot bridge to illustrate your article, as residents have highlighted concerns about security issues within an enclosed bridge and stairs.

    • My understanding his from staff at Plumstead Bus Garage is that some someone was stabbed. If he was already on the bus when the stabbing occurred or got on the bus for help I do not know.

      All I know is this is another needless and senseless crime on the streets of London which needs to stop,
