A story in tonight’s Evening Mail tells of damage caused to a total of 54 cars at a Dalton garage by paint stripper attacks. The cost is estimated to be £270.00 we ourselves have had thousands of pounds worth of damage done to taxis with paint stripper. I find it utterly outrageous that these chemicals which can be used to inflict this sort of damage to property should be on open sale to all and sundry. And don’t forget that there have been cases where it has been used to deliberately blind people .If retailers are not willing to regulate themselves lets have some legislation to force them into asking for I.D. and to record who it is sold to.
