If you use Wikipedia today (24.07.3021), you may find the Featured Article today looks rather familiar:
“The Chandler’s Ford shooting was an attempted robbery on 13 September 2007 in which two men were shot dead by officers of London’s Metropolitan Police while robbing a cash-in-transit van. The Met had been tracking a gang who had stolen an estimated £500,000 from security vans and learned that the gang intended to rob the HSBC bank in Chandler’s Ford.”
Not sure how often Chandler’s Ford gets the global attention like today.
However we don’t think the community is proud to be defined by “The Chandler’s Ford Shooting”.
Chandler’s Ford is more than ‘the shooting’ in 2007. The HSBC branch is no longer there at the Precinct.
