Sainsbury’s said this week they had stopped deliveries to the Gleadless Valley area “because of issues over driver safety”.
Police said they were baffled by the decision, as no incidents had been reported to them.
Tesco lifted its delivery ban and now delivers to the S14 postcode in daylight.
Sally Kilic, who chairs Gleadless Valley Tenants’ and Residents’ Association, said the area was being “painted in a negative light. I lived in Hunters Bar for 33 years before moving to Gleadless Valley and I wouldn’t move back.”
