Police were still hunting the man’s attacker last night.

  • All the criminals and gangs etc know there is police cuts and not a bobby in site. There is the occasional town ranger. European gangs require serious policing and cash. You're in deep trouble.

  • This afternoon in Town just spoke to a retired Police Inspector who was less than complimentary about the police, PCSO's and every other person in uniform. He said the Police in this Town talk a really good job but do not deliver. Perhaps He stated a new Central Commander is starting. Well Inspector Hinett will you deliver and actually deal with beggars, drinkers and other anti social behaviour. All they have to do is implement the law, the powers are there, use them.

  • Why no description of the attacker? Did the police not supply the Star with one? I hope this information is not being censored and adversely effecting the hunt for this criminal.

  • Whilst the Police are more concerned with changing the fixture dates for ITFC, what can we expect?
