Are police failing?

I HAVE followed with interest the articles in the Bognor Observer regarding the anti-social behaviour in and around the recently-removed seafront shelter, and sympathise with the local residents and people wishing to use the promenade.

However I didn’t think for one moment that I would see the day when Arun District Council would spend £8,500 of our money to submit to a handful of individuals who are unwilling to conform to normality.

We have a police station in the town and a number of PCSO officers: is the demolition of this public facility an indication that our local police force is unable to manage its business? Demolishing the shelter will not stop the nonsense that was going on there... it will just move to another area.
