Basingstoke, Hampshire: Annette Ramshaw
Annette, 24, says: ‘I work in my local shop and every night we get abuse from the teenagers. They come in gangs and steal — if we try to stop them we get abuse or things thrown at us. They hang around outside the shop until we close and then smash the windows and break the shutters. We call the police but half the time they don’t turn up.
‘I have a five-year-old child and it’s not right that I can’t even take him to the shop. Things have to change.’
