First there was the violent confrontation on the bridge (the one that leads from the Hilton across to East Bridge Street) which resulted in a teenager jumping over the side of the bridge to escape, and sustaining serious injuries from the long fall.
Then last weekend came the news report of a fourteen year old girl who was raped in the Waterfront area.
An area surrounded by paved pedestrian walkways, whether along the banks of the Lagan or in front of the concert hall. Restaurants opening. Foundations of more buildings been dug and concrete poured.
Covered with cameras. Yet still an unsafe place to be at night. No cameras actually covering the length of the bridge. But would the addition of more cameras actually make the area any safer?
