    I live in a council estate in Notts, which was named the UK's drug dealing capital.
    Someone who used to live on the end of my street was named Europe's largest drug dealer.
    Gun and knife crime is not unheard of around here.
    I've lived here all my life and distinctly remember when I was about 7 years old
    I was told to wear my shoes on the local field because of dirty drug needles.

    Despite the deprivation and attitudes in my area, I've worked hard and I hope to go to a Russell Group uni.

    No, it's quite a small community so you grow up with everyone. I know the family of the guy I mentioned. You've just got to know who to be friends with and when to keep your head down. Never owe money and never threaten anyone's dominance there's a hierarchy here, you know where you stand and if you challenge that then you get shot down.

    Oh thanks you're so kind! It's not so much about helping me out, I just really like to find interesting cases for my work! I'll be in touch, as for now I have an assignment and an exam to work on, but soon I'll be free to work on my dissertation!

    Nothing to ask, just to say well done. I grew up in a scummy estate (Northamptonshire) and it's pretty gratifying to get out of it and start uni.

    We all went to state school. It's unheard of around here to go to private school. I actually went to a "community college" as my secondary school, which was about as scummy as it sounds

    There don't seem to be a lot of decent private school around that sort of area anyway:nah:

    Ooo, sounds so scummy and dirty, I like it :perv:
