Sir: I am encouraged to learn that, despite the continuing shortfall in manpower and other resources, the police forces of the United Kingdom are still able quickly to identify and target new threats to our society ("Police target cars at random", 16 December).

However, the nature of the threat "born-again bikers"' pose is not clear; are they to be charged with looking faintly ridiculous ("Having middle- aged spread unbecoming to a very smart motorcycle") or merely with having fantasies about how they should have behaved during their youth?
