STRAIGHT TO THE point.

Trolleybus 203 featured in Viewpoints on June 3 WELL, after looking through the Echo and seeing an old trolleybus on page 16 and seeing it was trolleybus 203, which I used to drive in the '60s, it was as if it had come back to life. The '60s were one of the best times of my life.

Gerald Holdham Llanrumney, Cardiff WOULD local bookmakers state what odds they will give on a sports bet, based on the 2010/11 football season? The bet is a double with Cardiff City being promoted to the Premier League, next season, and Blackpool being relegated.

Len Robinson Gabalfa, Cardiff WITH the recent bout of hot weather, we should be reminded animals suffer and die when temperatures soar. Dogs die very quickly in hot cars and they should not be left inside them even for short periods.

Other animals suffer, too. Rabbits must not be left in a hutch in the glaring sun or inside a sweltering garage or shed. They need a cool, shady place where the air circulates, and where they are able to move freely. A hot rabbit can be kept cool by applying cold water gently to his ears. Should your rabbit become listless, or start breathing hard through an open mouth or go limp, get him to a vet immediately. Rabbits must also be checked daily throughout summer months for signs of flystrike.

Smaller animals, like hamsters, rats and gerbils, can be kept cool by opening windows and closing curtains, using a fan (but not pointing it directly at them), refreshing water and providing a frozen water bottle, wrapped in a towel.

Kate Fowler Head of Campaigns, Animal Aid DO we really know what's in our food? Wales' four Euro-MPs are about to vote on whether shoppers have a right to clear information about the food we buy.

But food manufacturers have been lobbying hard to stop the use of "traffic light labels", which use green, amber and red markings to show how much salt, fat and sugar is contained in processed foods.

I am very happy to give my name to the campaign for honest up-front labelling and hope Wales' other MEPs will put aside party differences to join me.

Derek Vaughan MEP Labour, Wales
