[satire]
Tisbury's count should be one.

The 'crime' is the woefully poor service provided by SWR» (South Western Railway - about) on the line through Tisbury.  Tongue

Lies, damned lies and statistics?

Yes, Melksham has the highest crime rate per passenger journey in Wiltshire.  Two in a year!

Increase the service from pathetic to appropriate (hourly each way), make it reliable so that people aren't left hanging around for hours, and you'll find passenger numbers rocketing without much or any change in crime numbers.

That would be a crime in itself!

As far as Dean is concerned, perhaps all the crime takes place on the Hampshire side of the station  Wink Grin
