CATCH DOLE CHEATS: I see the police are making great efforts to apprehend those involved in the £53m robbery which took place in Tonbridge. This is to be applauded.

However, it does seem ironic this amount of money is just a fraction of the millions, or even possibly billions, of pounds stolen from British taxpayers each year by benefit fraudsters.

It is a pity the same amount of effort is not being applied to catch these people. Perhaps we have one law for the banking world and another for British taxpayers.

WHOSE FIGURES?: According to your article about the efficiency of speed cameras (News Shopper, March 1), apparently an independent review was behind the figures being quoted. Can we please be told who carried out this review as neither of the august bodies named can be described as independent.

Sir Winston Churchill is often quoted as having said: "There are lies, damn lies and then there are statistics." I fear we may be in this sort of territory in this case.
