Getting smashed

First published in Letters by

I HAVE noticed just recently the number of shop windows that have been boarded up after having the glass smashed is increasing at an alarming rate.

Is this anything to do with the opening hours of local pubs/clubs? It does seem that more people are making their way home at much later times then used to be the case and sadly some of these people do so after drinking large amounts of alcohol.

Many obviously can’t handle it and go out of their way to be a nuisance.

With the World Cup about to start, I fear more windows might be going the way of the others.

Probably something to do with it being the summer months? Warmer outside = more people on nights outside = more windows smashed.

Anybody else find it ironic this letter is listed on the letters page of the website right underneath a letter about drunk tanks? so we have drunk tanks followed by 'getting smashed'...
