Cash hope for thugs’ victims
VICTIMS of anti-social behaviour ignored by the authorities could get funding for private court actions against their tormentors.
Under a proposed Home Office scheme, families who are “passed from pillar to post” could be given the money to take out court injunctions.
It would be a “last resort” for victims who had nowhere to turn. The police forces and councils which failed to help them would then be forced to pay the bill.
