I have just been talking to the police this morning about a young couple who are being targeted by a group of up to 20 lads. It’s the usual harassment of stones and cans thrown at the windows and walls, verbal abuse and threats.
The couple are fairly quiet people who are being terrified by this intimidation. The husband works, but his wife is too scared to go out of the house during the day whilst he is at work.
The police don’t seem that interested – I think because there is little they can do. Everytime the couple phone the police the young lads disperse until the police have gone away. Then they come back to resume their harassment.
It makes me angry that there are people in Nottingham who are living in fear like this.
