IT WAS sad to see complete idiots throwing tiles off a house roof in Bishop Auckland (Echo, Feb 19).

There were six of these low lives lobbing roofing tiles at our emergency services, one of whom was slightly injured.

It is not many months ago since a youth high on drink and drugs demolished half a roof at Peterlee and damaged two police cars by throwing roofing tiles.

I wonder who clears up all their mess and who pays for the massive roofing repairs?

Just walking on a roof, be it tiles or slates, will wreck it as the weight of you is probably a ton or more at your feet!

I wonder what punishment these toe rags will get? Do they still have approved schools or have they been deemed too harsh for modern delinquents?

Bishop Auckland will never attain the level of culture that it desires with these people at large!
