Did police really take it seriously?
I refer to the front-page article of the Mercury concerning teenagers rampaging through Narborough ("Anger as teens go on rampage", February 20)
It states that the lady in the Mercury News shop, which was the first target of the offenders, dialled 999 as soon as the group left the shop (a little after 8pm).
I would suggest that the series of attacks on shops, cars and a church must have taken at least half-an- hour.
Nowhere in the article was there mention of the police arriving in the village in response to the 999 call.

Are you doing a disservice to the police or did they really fail to attend this frightening event despite claiming to take it "very seriously" and being aware of "previous incidents of anti-social behaviour".

Regarding Geoff Dorrofield's letter on the subject of restoring the Meynells Gorse 103 park-and-ride service from its reinstated hub in St Nicholas Place to its previous Haymarket terminus ("Restore bus stop", Mailbox, February 19) .
Probably the reason this has been instigated is for the Birstall service to occupy this drop off/pick up stop originally used by the Meynells Gorse bus.
Buses accessing Belgrave Gate / Haymarket is chaotic at the best of times and drafting in another service would only cause more congestion, so a decision must have been reached to transfer the 103 service back to its former base.
This will no doubt aggrieve those passengers who frequent this service, being deprived of this convenient stop near to the Clock Tower.

As a huge advocate of Leicester, I' d like to lend my support for the Leicester to be the city of culture.
I think this will be fantastic and add to the excitement that surrounds Leicester at present. Leicester is a very worthy candidate.
