Saturday Night Isn't All Right For Fighting
I think the whole of Nottingham was shocked when it was announced on the news that there had been a murder in the city centre in the early hours of Sunday morning.
As the reports were updated, it emerged that there had been several arrests and the victim was only a teenager.
I went through the area today that had been cordoned off by the police during Sunday & Monday, while the investigation took place, and came across a lamppost that was covered in floral tributes for the murdered man.
It emerged that his name was Joshua Bradley, and he was only 19. A pleasant, happy lad by all accounts, and he was a keen boxer. He may even have followed Carl Froch into being a famous fighter, if he hadn't been in the wrong place at the wrong time.
There has been a couple of arrests and hopefully they will be charged soon. It beats me why anyone should do such a thing to someone who was just out to enjoy himself at the weekend.
