Firefighters attending a medical emergency in the West Wight have expressed their outrage after hearing about local youngsters tormenting an elderly gentlemen.
A retained crew from Freshwater Fire Station were mobilised to an address on Longhalves Lane this evening (Thursday) to help paramedics gain entry to a property. The alarm was raised around 17:05.
During the course of the shout it transpired that local children have, for a number of weeks, been tormenting and causing distress to the elderly man by throwing eggs at his windows.
In a post on Freshwater Fire Station’s Facebook page, it’s been said:
“It’s very rare that we see this kind of thing in the West Wight Community and perhaps that makes it seem worse.
“If these are your children please do remind them this is not funny, not clever and absolutely not acceptable.
“Please look after our old folk, we’ll all be old one day”.
