Makes me question whether I want to go on living here.

POLICE were today quizzing a man after a savage hammer attack on a 16-year-old youth in Queensgate bus station.
Late-night bus passengers looked on in horror as the assault left the teenager unconscious in a pool of blood on the floor.

The victim was said to be ''critical but stable'' in Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge, today after being transferred to a specialist head injury unit from Peterborough District Hospital.

Today, as detectives and scenes of crime officers worked at the station, bus companies had to switch services to other platforms as bays two and 15 remained cordoned off.

Shocked commuters using early buses this morning saw evidence of the attack on the blood-splattered ground.

An 18-year-old man was arrested at an address in Gunthorpe, Peterborough, last night, on suspicion of assault causing actual bodily harm.

He was being questioned by detectives at Thorpe Wood police station, today.

The issue of security at the bus station, which underwent a 250,000 revamp in 2003, has been raised on several occasions.

Chief Superintendent Paul Phillipson today said officers were taking "every step possible" to preserve the crime scene and seek out potential witnesses.

Andy Campbell, spokesman for Stagecoach, which operates bus services from the Queensgate station, said: "Despite the two bays being closed, we have minimised disruption to services by using different bays."

Detective Sergeant Melanie Dales, who is part of the investigation team, said: "I would appeal to anyone who was in the Queensgate Bus Station around this time, who may have seen the assault, or what happened in the moments leading up to it, to contact us.

"We need to build up a clear picture of what happened prior to this incident, and any information could help us."

City councillor Nick Sandford has raised fears over security and dangers at the bus station in the past.

Today, he said: "It is appalling that something like this should happen.

"There are obviously major security issues that need to be addressed. CCTV is not enough we need security guards.''

Aye, a massive rise in unprovoked attacks round my area. And they are only the reported ones, there must be many, many, more which go unreported.

Strangely i live in a relatively decent and friendly (for want of a better word) town which is supposed to be fairly civilised. It's changing.

I remember my mum droped a ladder on my head when I was about 8.
I was happy and carefree when I was 8, I blame that knock.

I forgot until yesterday... Hiberian were playing somebody on the television at the time, strange thing to remember.

Why the hell would someone carry a hammer round with them?! Suprised he lived, too. I got hit on the head with a hammer once. Just once damn hurt, can't even imagine what he felt! Poor man.

Sorry, don't understand - difference between what? Punishment in general and the example of punishment in Dubai?

Worst bit is, 10 minutes until home time and I know I have to spend 15 minutes in that bus station waiting for a connection... :-(

My town is starting to get very bad for this.
Some 16 year old was stabbed and died in his home about 1/2 miles from house.

Every week the local paper's first 5 pages are about murders/assaults.
It makes me sad.
