Or it could be kids from well respected, middle class upbringings who have nothing better to do. Either way, they need sorting

That's terrible.
To add insult to injury, your insurance premium will go up if you claim against it and, if caught, the yobs responsible will get a minor fine or ticking off.
Any fine should reflect the cost of damage, the increase in insurance premiums, the inconvienience, and the true cost of the boys in blue & hiring out a court.

Its endless in the Pells. We had our back lights smashed recently, wind screen wipers ripped off this week and the poor old Pells Pool getting burgled... I've called the police at least three times this week! Particular highlight was the kid arrested with a BB gun down at the pond after spending the day shooting at people all over town

Apparently there was a commotion in Lansdowne Place and St Nicholas Lane on Friday night - allegedly half a dozen yobs from Brighton smashed flowerpots & window baskets, and hit a Lansdowne Place resident on the head with a lump of concrete. What is going on?

Spinster, what is NOT going on is the plod getting on the pavement.

Spinster, there were two residents who confronted the yobs and got injured doing so. With two black eyes and gash over one, the Lansdown Resident who got hit with a rock said he would do it again tomorrow because the little sh1ts should not be allowed to get away with it. Both residents have apprehended vandals or drunk drivers in the past with no thanks from the Police. It seems that we should start to stand up for ourselves and say no. The yobs on Friday were eventually caught only because they were followed and their location pin pointed by members of the public.

As the police have apparently been on demanding there should be no racist comments on this site (quite right too) perhaps they'd like to come on now and tell us what proportion of their time they spend on the beat.

Most policies have a 50 or 60 excess for glass, the usual excess doesn't apply in this case. Do check your documentation before you scrap the car !

my vehicle as it was a previous write off is now only worth 275 the damage to the 2 windows and door was over half therefore its a writeoff as it was 2 windows thats 2x60 plus planel damage or 250 excess the only exception to this is if they capture and convict i would get the 250back fat chance of that so i scrapped it for 40 and we had a chinese very nice too

Also heard that Coopers (funeral directors) were broken into last night - the thieves entering the back, climbing over coffins in order to get to the front shop and making off with the LCD TV in the window.

There was a lot of vandalism in Baxter's Field last year. The 'obvious' culprits were Ousedale chav kids, but in fact the boys who were caught were 'nice' middle class boys, one of whom was at St Bede's.

To make amends, the boys were asked to spend a Saturday morning clearing up their mess. One parent objected because it clashed with the little sod's football practice.

I agree with Taff. Where is the bobby on the beat?
