This week I intercepted two individuals posing as gardeners outside of our flat, they were in fact waiting to do a drug deal in the area of the bridge near the Dicker Mill Industrial Estate. I called 101 and the Police were actually very good, I provided them with the videos and they confirmed that they were known to them. I have also been made aware that there is a major drugs problem coming from some of the new builds near Hertford East station. It is quite common to see people clearly under the influence of drugs in that area, and openly dealing near Hartham Common. I do feel incredibly sad about what has happened to Hertford in recent years. We first lived here 2008-2009 before moving away, and returning again in 2012 to present. The town has changed so much in recent years, and there are certain parts (sadly where I live) where drug dealing is now prolific. You can smell drugs walking home from Hertford East station, it is quite depressing and explains why we and a great number of our neighbours have put our homes up for sale, or intend to do so in the new year.
