I FEEL I must respond to your article in the July 17 issue about the supposed harassment by police of a group of youths in Lympstone. Firstly, I would like to thank the police, especially our PCSO Sarah Trayburn, for responding when called.Over the past 12 months or so, we have had an ongoing problem with anti-social behaviour and vandalism within our community. We do not wish to have to live in an environment where you feel intimidated, your property vandalised and you feel too scared to go out. There are also a number of girls involved, some quite young. None of these youths is old enough to be drinking. When these youths cannot get jobs, their parents will wonder why. Things will only get worse if something isn't done now.These youths are giving the village a bad name. Lympstone really is a nice friendly place where everyone tries to get along without upsetting everyone around them!I request that I remain anonymous as I do not want any repercussions.Name and address withheld.
