Letter: Ban the vans

Click to follow
Sir: I fully endorse the campaign against illegal street trading (especially by ice-cream vans) being waged by Kensington and Chelsea Chamber of Commerce, as referred to in Jane Crosthwaite's letter (19 August).

These vans plague residential areas with their noisy chimes, their hygienic practices are highly dubious, they cause traffic problems and they encourage children to run across the road. Surely it is time that this anachronistic form of vending was finally laid to rest?

Yours faithfully,


Keyworth, Nottingham
