    Whilst I appreciate that it can't be much fun for those that live within earshot, it's better to have them all in one place.

    At least when they're trying to do burn-outs in their 1.0 Corsas on the car park, or filling their faces with fat, salt and sugar, they aren't causing mayhem on the public roads.

    You've obvs never tried to do a burn-out in a Corsa ?! ;)

    But, more seriously, I don't see how there's enough room on maccies car park for that - it used to go on a lot at the Dreams/Farmfoods/Dunelm carpark, but that was ages ago ...

    At least the culprits have been caught.

    Whilst many of the car lads are just hanging out sensibly on the gym/car wash park or at Maccy's there is a handful who take it onto public roads as Eccleshall Road, Stone Road and Foregate Street has pairs/groups of lads racing, redlining 2nd/3rd gear so travelling above motorway speeds, if it was just one or two evenings a week and not into the early hours it'd be liveable for local residents and businesses.

    No matter how often I report the problem the most that happens is a marked plod car parks up next to the roundabout with another in the petrol station, that does result in a quiet evening till they disappear off to Casa then it resumes.

    Once the new one opens up on Lichfield Road sure that'll be just the same.

    Police are hunting a further suspect. Possibly a disgruntled ex employee from the marketing department.

    He is described as having red hair, wearing yellow dungarees over a stripey top. Footprints left at the scene show he was wearing round toed shoes, in a size 28.

    They will find it harder on the hough retail as there are traffic lights at both entrances and on the main road. The stretch between entrances is only a couple of hundred yards with a mini roundabout in the middle. The main car park is also gated.
