READING about the mosquito device to disperse teenage gangs at Hamilton station (Evening Times online July 24), does this sonic device cover the whole facility?

Can it also dispel beggars, smokers and drunks?

More police action against the perpetrators and regular security warden patrols are obviously urgently required!

Rights breach

A SHOP in the Gorbals tried this mosquito device out a few years ago but were forced to remove it due it breach of human rights legislation.

An alternative which have been tried with some success has been to play classical music which has been shown to disperse crowds and does not target on section of the population.

Close station

THE station needs to be closed off to people without tickets - if that means a ticket machine needs to be installed outside the station or it needs to be manned until the last train then so be it.

The entrance on Kemp Street was put there to make it easier for people coming into the other platform, just going to have to close this off as well.

However, how about the Police in Hamilton do something other than sit outside the Hamilton Palace and deal with the little idiots.

I used to live in Hamilton - was there for years.

Having tried to get the Police to do anything I know how difficult that will be.

Ban on all routes

THE story about the ban on alcohol on train journeys to Troon (Evening Times online July 24), why would you need a drink on a journey of less than an hour?

It should be banned on all commuter routes.

No longer give

IN relation to the rise in begging in Glasgow (Evening Times July 24), I gave regularly to young guys and girls on the street.

But now l feel that some of these people are quite professional at it.

I watch two who regularly get on the Glasgow to Edinburgh train in the morning just after peak services have finished.

I also see others nipping round the corner on mobile phones.

It has now unfortunately tarred all street people with the same brush, the conversation regularly pops up at work or socially.
