Check out an area – another way

Set up a google news alert for the street you are interested in. It’ll then send you an email when there’s a news item about that street.
As long as the street name is fairly unique just use that in quote marks – if it’s not so rare then add in the second part of the address, eg: “Smith Street, New Moston” as your alert.
It’s well worth doing if you’re researching just a few streets – or even an area.
Read through the news alerts you get and look out for the ones mentioning crime and anti-social behaviour orders!
