SIR - The never-ending issue of firefighters constantly being attacked by hooligans really does beggar belief.

However, I must take issue with the T&A Editorial (June 28) which wondered "if cuts to fire safety budgets, which pay for firefighters to deliver safety messages direct to schools, are to blame."

On the contrary, this issue is invariably down to parents not bringing up their children properly, and instilling in them an understanding of right and wrong.

I suspect that if you looked at the parents of many (not all) of these miscreants then the problem would be better understood.
