When Playing Is a Crime

Roma children, mostly from Slovakia, are criminalised for playing in the Page Hall area of Sheffield. The media have descended on Page Hall after local MP, David Blunkett, attacked the Roma community, saying that there would be race riots if the new immigrants didn’t integrate.

One of the children on the estate asked me “How is this helping?” – a very good question and one that I think every journalist should ask themselves whilst reporting a sensitive story.
