Terrorised in their own homes

AMONGST all the television adverts for sofas, beds, insurance etc are messages from the police telling us we are all safe in our beds now because officers will be spending over 80 per cent of their time on the beat and less time on paperwork.

We then read in the Mercury about the antisocial behaviour in North Worle and wonder where the police are when acts of vandalism are taking place. By the law of averages surely 80 per cent of the mindless yobs should have been caught by now, or do they just act in the 20 per cent of time when the police are back in the station?

It comes to something when metal gates have to be put in place, in residential areas, to stop vandals terrorising law abiding citizens in their own homes. I also understand that objects are being placed on the railway lines in Worle - could it be connected with the problems in North Worle? If anyone is caught by the tracks surely they could be charged with attempted murder because at any time there could be a fatal train crash.

Someone out there knows who is creating all these problems and could report the culprits, but it seems that nobody is willing to do anything to help others live in peace and harmony - until it happens to them of course.
