I HAVE just read with interest David Knights' article – Villagers make threats to take vigilant action – in the Keighley News (October 26).

My understanding is Keighley Town Council, on the recommendation of the watch and transport committee, paid approximately £6,000 for the installation of CCTV cameras in and around Holden Park in Oakworth, precisely to record, and by so doing, prevent, such acts of vandalism as are detailed in the article.

If such cameras are in fact installed and operational, surely all this vandalism has in fact been recorded and is therefore available to the police? But how is it nobody interviewed for the article has mentioned this important anti-crime feature, which totally removes the need for any form of totally undesirable and unnecessary vigilante action?
