From Ms Caroline Mercer

Sir: This morning I walked to work in daylight (8.30am-9am) but I will be walking home in the dark (5.30pm-6pm). If the clocks were put forward an hour, I would be walking to work in the dark and still walking home in the dark, given that it is currently dark by 4.30pm.

I do not believe that my working hours are particularly unusual. Presumably, the women with whose vulnerability to attack on their way home Mr Wilson is concerned are all teachers?

Yours faithfully,

Caroline Mercer
