. With reference to “Fight over routes” (21 April) a cleaner at our school (Tanja from Springfield) was shot in the leg during the Westlake taxi protests. She was simply an innocent commuter caught in the crossfire. She is a single mother supporting three children and will probably spend months in hospital as she was hit in the knee with an exploding bullet that has destroyed most of the joint and her lower leg. Will the taxi association’s commitment to “rights” extend to feeding Tanja’s children and helping her to survive if their protest has cost her her leg?

Wynberg canal

. I live around the corner from the canal. It is filthy with litter and old clothing, etc. The verge in Devonshire Road is littered with used condoms, wrappers, bottles, etc.

. Our house backs onto the canal and we have vagrants living in an open field in Sherard Square. Last time we wrote to ward councillor it took six months before she replied! Had homeless man make lewd sexual advance last week in our driveway. What can be done?
