JUST a word in the ear of the scum who stole a section of my stone-flagged front driveway in the dead of night. I'm determined to track you down.

Nothing, it seems, is safe from the claws of the low-life. Those flags were obviously stolen to order and I shan't cease my personal efforts to discover the identities of the raiders who struck somewhere between midnight and 8am last Thursday (June 21) in Moss Bank Road.

While police inquiries proceed, I'm stepping up security. Meantime, I'd welcome any possible help from readers who may come across info leading to a court appearance and penalties which, I pray, will be as swingeing as the law permits.

PLEASE contact me at the Star if you hear anything...
