Barnstaple, Devon: Stacey Elford

Walking home down a dark alley after a night out with friends, Stacey Elford heard someone run up behind her. A thug in a hooded jacket ripped her handbag from her shoulder and threatened her with a knife.
A 16-year-old boy was arrested. He appeared in court on 11 counts of antisocial behaviour and yet he walked away without punishment.
Stacey, 28, explains: ‘I thought that justice would be done. But the boy has been in court so many times it doesn’t make any difference. We have to stand together. If things don’t change, thugs will continue to have an easy life.’
