We are all aware of the council policy of 'Clean up Seaton', and we wholeheartedly agree, but does that extend to the drug problem that continues to blight our streets? The youth of our town are being pulled into a life of crime and misery due to the dealers wanting to earn a living through drugs. If you try to get your children away from these groups, you then endure abuse and harassment - just because you want your kids to have respect for themselves and stay on the right side of the lawWe hope the dealers, who sell this filth, can sleep well at night knowing that they are ruining people's lives.It seems that all law abiding citizens can do is keep an ear well to the ground and hope children listen to their parents and not their peers.Clean up Seaton from litter and drugs!We all believe that dealers should be named and shamed, as this will act as a deterrent for anyone else who thinks that it is a good way of life.Paul, Tracey and LauraName and address supplied
