  1. Lowest form of scum, preying on the vulnerable, these are the sort that should be dragged through out streets or locked in stocks in our town centres to be shamed and face public judgement……utter scum.

  2. Don’t open your door to anyone you don’t know or expect. Keep your door on a chain. Get an entry phone thing.

  3. Common Slugs in action again. 2 against a 70 year old, they must be really proud. Anybody who knows them ought to grass them up, proper.
    My front door has a chain, which I use.

  4. I never bother to even open mine not even on a chain unless I know the person who will let me know when they are coming , i had a spy hole fitted to my door and if I don’t know them I don’t open it. I put note on mine for parcels just saying please knock and leave outside . I do not say I am out.
    It is a shame the way times are changing and no town / area is much different .
