  • The police moved the beggar on from here and all round rotherham town centre which was fantastic, everyone said that Rotherham was a better place however this has not been kept going and the gang of beggars has returned. An example of this is at 7am we witnessed a beggar get out of a car, she was on her mobile saying goodbye to someone young, she then unrolled a sleeping bag, then emptied litter all around the bag, then she got in the bag, put a cup in front of her with a few pence in and pretended she had slept there all night.
