I NOTICE on page 7 of last week’s issue you ran a story asking for ‘Support in The War On Crime’.

Oddly enough on pages one and five you also printed glowing and encouraging reports of large numbers of people (in your words) ‘braving wet conditions’ in order to also commit a crime.

Whatever you might feel about hunting with dogs, it is illegal in England, and as such the Gazette should be ashamed of such a massive double standard in relation to this issue.

I imagine if a group of young people ‘braved wet conditions’ to smoke some dope in Victoria Park your coverage might have taken a different editorial slant.
