SIR - Disabled residents are always close to my heart and I do not write to you to ridicule nor victimise. However, I find it very difficult to find appreciation for finding a half page spread on how a disabled person has difficulty crossing a bridge (Page 10, Herts Advertiser, Thursday, June 11, pictured above).

I am very aware that society must be aware of the difficulties disabled people may have with the local area if it is not cared for properly. But I am disappointed to see such a large piece of column space given to a piece that is a simple complaint that should be actioned by the council. It is a little extreme to state that the whole community could be in danger, or even just school kids or buggies. As a young resident I feel that as a race we are too busy focusing on litigation and possible hazards a day out of the house might pose. Good luck to everyone going out for a walk over the weekend. Please don't come back with a story of falling over a twig and the hope of a personal injury claim!
