SIR - I totally agree with Rossano Nocera's comments (WHT, February 27) with regard to the children deliberately dropping debris along the B1000 recently.

I was travelling down Waterside towards the B1000 at around 5.15pm last week and four boys (no more than 12 years old) were throwing branches of trees into the road. There was also a small child's plastic pram in the centre of the carriageway.

As I turned left onto the B1000 a very large piece of tree trunk was across one of the carriageways. Fortunately I managed to avoid it as the opposite side of the road happened to be clear at the time but it was extremely dangerous and I dread to think what happened to the cars which were following me.

I could not stop as I was followed closely by other traffic at the time. I hope these young thugs are proud of themselves - should I see them again I will have no hesitation in stopping, taking their names and addresses and reporting them to the police.

Name and address supplied.
