I AM writing to express my family’s disgust at the yobbish behaviour of the model boat racers at Clarence Park on Sunday, January 25.

While strolling round the lido with our grandson we witnessed, yet again, the boats being used to chase the ducks and swans around the water.

The poor birds were clearly in distress, as these idiots charged their boats at them trying to deliberately hit the poor creatures.

Last July we saw exactly the same behaviour and reported our concerns to the council’s park manager who appears to have done nothing to stop this cruelty.

These wicked boaters should not be allowed to distress and torture these poor birds, and I hope the council will act decisively to stop this cruelty as soon as possible.
