This alleyway was blocked off to prevent young people making a quick getaway from the police at Reynolds Way shops about ten years ago. It features in a documentary about Young Reoffenders in the UK – filmed in Abingdon.
Whereas the number of young people getting into a life a crime is dropping, there are young people in their twenties already into a cycle of repeat offending.
They are the feature of The Documentary The UK’s Young Reoffenders: Rule Britannia (which contains bad language). This documentary could have been made in many towns but they found willing participants here.
