I WAS interested to read your article on last week's front page concerning Fred Brown.
There is no doubt that there is a lack of police in Littleport, particularly in the evenings and on Friday and Saturday nights.
The High Street can be an intimidating place with large groups of youths congregating and causing annoyance and distress to residents.
I reside near the fire station, which is in Ponts Hill and you only need to walk down that road to see the amount of broken glass which is currently still all over the road in four separate places. I can hear the shouting, swearing and general nuisance and there are no police.
You may also want to watch:
I would be interested to know what the police view as neighbourhood policing. They are not about where they need to be.
They should also look at what events are taking place in the village. Every time there is an event there are large groups of rowdy and anti-social youths around who have no regard to the locals living nearby.

Getting back to Fred Brown, I applaud him for standing up to the yob culture in Littleport. Why was this lad in the launderette and kicking hell out of the machine?
Do parents know where there children are at night? Do they care?
I have lived and worked in London and it is clear there is no policing at night in Littleport and the yobs know it, and if you stand up to them you are prosecuted.
It is much worse here and the councillors for Littleport should be asking the police about their neighbourhood patrols after 10pm, when the problems seem to occur.
