What has her age got to do with it?

I was distressed to read of the Sidmouth lady whose mother’s grave was vandalised (“More graveyard thefts”, Herald, June 6, front page).

But do your readers really need to know that the lady herself is 67?

Week by week, I am surprised and saddened that your reporters ask such irrelevant and intrusive questions – and that the interviewees answer them!
