It looks as if the new owners of the Queensgate Shopping Centre are falling down on the job when it comes to around the clock and at weekends security.
Despite putting a series of screens around the upper levels of the car parks, a group of children/ young persons were seen climbing the upper 10 level fencing of the car park facing the Brewery Tap/ NCP car park on Sunday at around 5pm - within a few yards of the CCTV camera!
It seems to be a dangerous new form of 'chicken' as one child climbs the fence and the rest stand round and cheer him on. The car park entrances were closed and no sign of security.
Clearly this is a known car park for suicides and 'base jumping' deaths, for that very reason fencing and CCTV was installed, but it does require someone, somewhere to be watching the screens. Clearly that wasn't happening on Sunday.
