Totally misleading report on the Mercury website about shoplifting.http://www.hertfordshiremercury.co.uk/c ... story.html
The figures quoted take no account of the populations of each town. Cheshunt has the highest population so unsurprisingly has more shoplifters. And why a single figure for Hertford & Ware?
And I do wish they'd stop calling it Mercury Land. They stopped engaging with the community years ago (anyone remember the Mercury bus?). Most of their reporters are from outside the town and know little about the area. It's fast morphing from a local newspaper in to an advertising platform.
