Regarding the photo of the young people on Eype Beach (Bridport News, January 7th). The police had no report and I read one person observed the party but did not phone the police. The parents must take some blame driving the youngsters to the beach in the first place.

I was at West Bay last week and was asked whether the footpath across the fields led to the town.

I asked the people where they were from. ‘London’, they replied, and we wonder why the virus is on the increase in Bridport.
