Re: Hedge Clipping

Seems a bit hard on farmers who have enough to do without cosseting a few cyclists daft enough to miss the obvious.Glass is a different issue as breaking bottlesis not an integral part of manufacturing.

Re: Stealing by finding

We do not have a local police station-the nearest is 4 miles away.This a city of 600000.Therefore very hard to hand in items found and little incentive to do so.

I've no way of checking,but I suspect for every one with an arts degree earning good money there are ten or more who can't get work in their field.
