ON Saturday morning I went to Sir Isaac’s Walk to shop.

I was appalled to see a large number of children, accompanied by adults, attending a show of people dressed in costumes.

Some were acceptable but others were padded out, looking very scary and pointing machine guns and other weapons at pedestrians.

Do we really need to promote violence in this way with all the terrible stabbings and shootings taking place now.

I was scared, but then again I am an elderly person.

Surely most people will recognise the violence on TV and computer games are some of the cause of our life today.
