Shoppers are warned to be on their guard after reports of...Shoplifters? Pickpockets? Too-early renditions of 'Walking In The Air' over the shop PA?
...town centre yobs hurling cans at strangers.
Groups of people have been spotted gathering in Town Square and St Martin’s Square, Basildon, to drink and cause a nuisance - despite the area being an alcohol free zone.Gosh! It's almost as if people like this are no respecters of laws, isn't it?
Phil Turner, leader of Basildon Council, said he has “100 per cent confidence” the authority will be able to put a stop to the nuisance behaviour by using CCTV.Well, if you hook it up to a means of taking out the aforementioned nuisances, yes. Otherwise, it's just a way of giving some bored council employee something to do in between rounds of 'Solitaire', isn't it?
