Have your say

Its about time these thugs get what they deserve! It happens too often where a group of youths itimidate people, its just a shame that it got physical with this young couple. I will certainly think twice before walking home on my own in the evenings! Unfortunately the police seem to do very little in these situations, surprisingly there never seems to be enough evidence! Get them sent down and see how hard they feel then!!! Hope the couple a speedy recovery and dont let them get you down!

What a dreadful thing to happen, here's hoping the victims are on the mend. Lets hope the Police treat this in the way that it should be and lock up the vile group and throw away the key, because lets face it how many times do thugs like them get away with these terrible acts, as they no how to play the system and the police! Oh they should be so very proud of themselves...THE COWARDS...
