I run chippy on 'UK's worst estate' – vile yobs throw dead PIGEONS in my shop | The Sun

A CHIPPY boss has told how she is being terrorised by a gang of feral yobs who hurl dead pigeons and eggs at her shop.

Tormented Lucky Grewal, 40, has even had her car and shop smashed up by the vile louts on an estate branded "the worst in Britain".


And the offenders – some as young as nine – bombard residents and shopkeepers with horrific racial and physical attacks on notorious Blakenall, on the outskirts of Walsall, West Midlands.

The mum-of-three told The Sun Online: "It’s constant. One bad thing you could put up with but it’s all the time, day and night.

"We are all so scared, my staff, my customers.

"And we call the police and they do nothing, absolutely nothing."

The menacing attacks started in lockdown but have become more and more sinister since then.

On one occasion Lucky's hubby Rocky, also 40, watched in horror as the layabouts hurled a pigeon they had slaughtered into popular King Cod Chippy in Blakenall Road.

Recalling the horror, his wife Lucky said: "I wasn’t there but they threw the bloody dead bird across the counter and it fell on the floor. It was shocking.

"Yes we called the police but no they did nothing.”

Lucky – who sighs she is “not so lucky” also revealed the truants have smashed her shop windows and trashed cars including those of delivery drivers parked outside.

And the mum from Wolverhampton even said the yobs "threw large pumpkins across the counter" at Halloween last year.

And shockingly, she regularly has salt and vinegar lashed in her face.

But in one standout horror incident the thugs pelted eggs at two cops investigating one of the crimes at her shop.

The mum said: “As they were checking the CCTV the lads threw eggs at them splattering all over their uniforms, and then they ran off.

“One officer told me ‘We can’t do much about that!’"

Lucky demanded: “But why can’t they? It is their job and they just don’t care, and they do absolutely nothing.

"We need someone to help and no one wants to."

And Lucky’s brother Harry Grewal, 21, who helps serve in the chippy, is appalled that despite cops knowing the face and name of one thug – they allegedly do nothing.

Lucky, who lives in Wolverhampton with her hubby, 15-year-old daughter and twin sons, aged 14, works shifts with three other family members in the chippy.

But the family say the behaviour is costing them dearly- with customers now too scared to even buy food from their shop.

Tragically, the abuse has become so hard to bear that Lucky's terrified daughter, 15, is begging her to close the family business.

One of their punters, who did not want to be named but travels for the "tasty fish and chips", said: “It’s got very dodgy round here with kids running wild and abusing people.

'LIKE UKRAINE'

"The parents don’t seem to care what they get up to, as they’re in the local pub, they turn a bind eye.”

Another customer – a beauty shop boss – likened the Blakenall estate to "war-torn Ukraine", saying she was forced to barricade herself in her shop following a sexual assault.

Reliving the horror, the mum-of-three said: "They were banging on my door and asking me for sexual favours. I felt sickened and scared and it was very disturbing.”

The 44-year-old added: "We’re too scared to walk home from work alone for fear of being abused."

Another resident, a cleaner, 46, added: "It used to be a decent place to live but now it’s awful and I’m not surprised it’s been called the worst place in the country."

While one local claimed: "The yobs even smashed up the local primary school yesterday and ran off when police arrived."

West Midlands Police say they are stepping up patrols and using dispersal orders to try and control the issues.

Inspector Phil Upton of Walsall Neighbourhood Team, said: "We are aware of growing concern around instances of appalling behaviour by a small minority of young people in the Blakenall area.

"We understand how upsetting and worrying this can be and we have been carrying out extra patrols in the area to discourage further incidents and help with our on-going enquiries.

A Walsall Council spokesperson said: “The council is actively working in partnership with West Midlands Police colleagues, partners and the local community to tackle these issues.”
