SIR, - My heart goes out to Mr Tony Swendell of Redbourn Parish Council who thinks that he is being blackmailed into spending money for a village Police Community Support Officer (Herts Advertiser, March 27).

Now he knows how I feel after being blackmailed by the parish council into paying in excess of £24,000 to them for access to my then property on the edge of Redbourn Common. It is good to know that perhaps my money will be put to good use.

J. PECK,

Moreton Place, Harpenden.
