Editor’s Comment: Time to tackle these drunken yobs

This morning I witnessed a depressingly common sight.

At about 10.30am five people, completely drunk off their heads, stumbled past me down Ryton Street.

This week we report that these sort of people are now trying to befriend youngsters in local parks, encouraging to steal from shops and drink booze.

Clearly, this is an extremely worrying issue and the authorities need to take swift action to stamp it out.

If we are not careful, soon we could have a situation on our hands where alcohol addiction has the sort of grip on Worksop as heroin addiction did in the early 2000s.

The children of Worksop have a right to be able to enjoy the local parks without being harassed by drunken yobs.
