I HAVE been angry this week reading my Echo.

Firstly, the deliberate damage of the sun shelter in Thorpe Bay and then the yobs crawling all over the Dutch Cottage on Canvey.

I ask one question - where are the parents? We’re in a pandemic and they allow their children out to cause damage. Shame on them.

I see young people out and not respecting social distancing, some are in shops without masks. They really need to be told how to be good citizens.
