Residents would feel more secure with metal railings
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.
