Josephine, a second year Hispanics student and Smithdown resident, is worried by the recent chaos.

She said: “Smithdown is a horrible place to live at the moment. Walking up the road, especially by the Asda, feels so eery.

“They say bad things come in threes, but when is all this havoc going to stop?”
