I was appalled to read your story about Mr Rocks, who was arrested 10 times after having epileptic seizures (Evening Times, May 19)

You would think by now that police would have sensitivity training and be able to tell the difference between someone who is drunk and someone who is ill.

Glasgow has a big problem with alcohol and the way it makes people behave on our streets but that doesn't excuse police officers being over zealous.

I hope Police Scotland's work with Epilepsy Scotland makes a big difference for people like Mr Rocks.

Canal clues

I was cycling along the canal the other day and spotted a numbe of signs.

When I stopped to have a look it turned out they were signs showing places of interest.

Now, I remember reading about an app Scottish Canals had created to help bring the canals to life.

I think the idea was you could download it and then explore the canal towpaths.

And now that I've seen 10 signs it's something I'll definitely be doing.

Flood horror

What a terrible thing to happen to Mr Khan and his family (Evening Times, May 19.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I read that every time it rains his house is flooded and he has even had to call in the emergency services.

It must be similar to what happened to the poor people down in England earlier this year.

I know from my own experience when we had a leak in our house how difficult it was to dry everything out - for Mr Khan it must be nigh impossible. It's about time this problem was sorted out.
