Res­i­dents would feel more se­cure with me­tal rail­ings

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR TELEGRAPH -

READ­ING your ar­ti­cle re­gard­ing se­cu­rity in Buck­thorn Road, where the fenc­ing has been re­moved, was a bless­ing in dis­guise.

I have lived in this road for six years and there have been two at­tempted breakins into my home and the garage door has been forced.

Luck­ily, noth­ing was taken.

I have had two sep­a­rate cases where hang­ing bas­kets and planters have been taken from the front of my prop­erty, and dog muck thrown over my car.

I now have se­cu­rity alarms fit­ted to my home and a se­cu­rity light at­tached to my garage.

I do think a con­tin­u­a­tion of me­tal rail fenc­ing or some­thing would be a de­ter­rent for some of these at­tacks and cre­ate a sense of se­cu­rity for peo­ple’s homes.

We were led to be­lieve six years ago that me­tal rail­ings would re­place the wooden fenc­ing.
