Young students, especially foreign ones are often targeted by young thieves, both male and female, especially in the late evenings, although it can happen at any time of day. Cash, cameras and mobile (cell) phones are the items most often taken. Despite CCTV in the town centre they are not often caught.
One day I was in Hastings and decided to get a portion of yummy seaside chips and eat them at the seafront. As I was walking along finding a place to sit and eat my lunch in the fresh air and sunshine a cheeky seagull swooped down and stole a chip straight out of my hand AND it took the wooden fork I was eating them with too!
The seagulls are greedy and they are not ashamed to beg and steal!
