I HAVE to say reading your article on Sunday morning street cleaning (September 10) horrified me, as we live very close to a very noisy Cromwell's Bar (which incidentally the council do nothing about).

We don't get to sleep until 3am or sometimes 4am on a Sunday morning. After the music stops, Cromwell's empties its bottles (of which there seem to be thousands) into the bottle banks and the drunks get out of town.

To be then woken up in the early hours of the morning by cleaning operators is absolutely shocking. Perhaps the people who make the licensing laws and decide on early morning clean-ups should spend a few months having to listen to what we listen to.

Yes, we wanted to live in town, but never in my wildest dreams did I think it would mean extended opening hours, pub doors being left open until 2am to allow smokers to hear the music and then the drunks with their violence and aggressive talk while waiting on the corner for Steve's taxis to take them home. It's turning into a society of no-one wanting to take responsibility for ensuring residents feel safe in their homes.
