Police aren’t to blame for yobs

I have read your article in the paper with regards to the yobs, and disagree.

Don’t blame the police for their lack of presence as their budgets have been cut and so have the number of officers. Over the last few weeks the damage within the town to the businesses cannot be accepted.

Insurance premiums will rise in due course and will affect everybody eventually.
