Fear and diversity in Birmingham's neighbourhoods

The Birmingham Post has reported on a government study which has revealed that Anti-social behaviour affects third of Birmingham people. The findings are revealed from a Government national survey which asked people how they felt about their towns and cities.

The survey revealed that just under half of residents, 45 per cent, believe that drug-dealing is a problem in their neighbourhood and 32 per cent think anti-social behaviour is a problem.

Optimistically, and building on one of Birmingham's strengths which Archbishop Tutu praised in Rotary International's World Peace Symposium (Celebrating Birmingham's diversity) , 72 per cent of residents said their “local area is a place where people from different backgrounds get on well together”.
