What on earth is going on in Sompting to have this happen?! Terrible.

I hope the dog walker recovers and the scum who attacked him are found quickly and jailed for a long time.

Sompting is the sort of place where a trip into Lancing is "a night out in town". Where Brighton is a place the locals have heard is "full of weirdos" that "sell drugs on the street corner", and is as distant and mysterious to them as Timbuktu or Jakarta. If they are really adventurous, they might go into Worthing, where they have things like "shopping precincts" and "frothy coffee made by Italians", but they "can't even get a decent cup o' tea".
