No chance the police there could just pop in these car-parks then? Here in the east I often see them checking places such as 7 sisters, Birling Gap & other more out the way parking areas! Just a thought.

These sort of criminal scum are on the increase. With street muggings at an all time high the solution is to build more prisons and lock them up for 10 years even on first offence. Make the prisons hellish too.

The Justice system in Britain is useless and we need to sever our ties with the European Court. Punish criminals severely and make the protection of the public the number one priority.

Considering some of these car parks charge for simply parking in a field, one or two security guards could be employed at popular times.

Had 4 new tyres and my windscreen wipers pinched off my car at carpark near devil's dyke a few years ago. They put very old tyres back on the car so I didn't actually notice till it began to rain and I turned on the wipers to see bare metal scraping along windscreen :(

I agree witrh the punishment point but the real issue is who teaches right and wrong anymore? People don't like to admit it but most of our morality was based on religious teaching which is now in decline. There are no generally accepted rules anymore, with everyone believing they can set their own boundaries. Successful communities requires compromise but very few are prepared to curtail THEIR RIGHTS ! Our RESPONSIBILITIES to others are rarely mentioned these days. Well never actually !

If it's youngsters, maybe it would work to imprison their parents with them - that might work?
