The area was scene of a widely reported crime on 5 February 2011, when heavily pregnant 19-year-old Nikitta Grender was stabbed to death in her flat, which was then set alight. 12 months later, Carl Whant (the cousin of Miss Grender's fiancée Ryan Mayes) was found guilty of murder and child destruction (he had also inflicted stab wounds which directly killed Miss Grender's unborn daughter) and sentenced to life imprisonment a year later. The flat was demolished in 2015.
