Birmingham is not shit

Did you know that since December 2007, 22 people died of a knife or gun-related crime in the West Midlands? Last week's killing of Dimitri Foskin in Hockley was the last in the disturbing spiral of what the police described as "tit-for-tat" gang violence. Take a look at The Birmingham Post 's detailed analysis.

More light-hearted news comes in the guise of the Birmingham-Is-Not-Shit website. Basically, sod Costa Brava or the clear water of the Aegean Sea, check out their fantastic article about Birmingham's very own beach!
