Vent your spleen.

So caring Northern Rock have decided to close even more small branches have they? Not content with closing Killingworth, Shields Road, Wallsend, Forest Hall, Chillingham Road and Four Lane Ends, they now expect us to travel into Newcastle or Gosforth to have access to our money. What about the elderly people who have no transport and can't get to these places? Do the customers no longer matter? I for one will be transferring the small amount of money I have into another building society, one which cares about their customers.

PM, Forest Hall.

REGARDING spray paint graffiti by individuals with the names Inch and KNT.

Whoever they are, they go about their work in complete darkness. And they are not worried if they have to risk their lives.

What Inch and his companions are spraying or painting has no artistic value in it at all. One way of possibly stopping graffiti is to paint over it or apply some substance which when re-sprayed does not allow the paint to dry, then it can be pressure hosed off. This has been tried in some cities in Scotland with some success.

Maybe we should provide more urban spaces with old brick walls for youths to display their artistic talents.

Some graffiti art is better than some modern sculptures. MR P ALDRED, Bedlington.
