Unpleasant vibe at station

I AM concerned that Hastings Station has recently acquired an unpleasant atmosphere.

I feel threatened by the teenagers in tracksuit bottoms shouting abuse at people, in particular train staff and students and am very disappointed to see that this has carried on for several weeks now.

This is not a good way to welcome people visiting Hastings for a day making people feel too scared to be around the station at night.

There is no sense in spending millions on new development if it is marred by this kind of behaviour, it is an insult to all the people that work so hard to attract tourism and higher education to Hastings.
