i would like to comment on the recent knife crime that has been taking place in Honiton. Having lived here all my life, I am very concerned about the way this town is becoming. Fair enough, it was never going to remain a place where you could leave your doors open, as in the past, but you would at least expect your friends and family to be able to go out at the weekend without having to worry about incidents like this. Fair enough that facilities for the young need to be looked at urgently, but there is no excuse whatsoever for someone to carry a knife. I am only a youngish person myself, but can see a change in the behaviour of kids growing up around here and, to be fair, it needs to be looked into seriously, before it is too late...
