Sir: I noted the arrival of the first tangible signs of a thaw this week. Not just the arrival of spring, but the beginnings of a relaxation of tension as the IRA truce continues.

The signs were unmistakable. Where posters have long urged the weary, but wary commuter to ceaseless vigilance for unattended luggage on Guildford station, there now appear a new set of left luggage lockers on the platform.

How long will it be before we can trust our society enough to welcome back the much needed litter bin? I hope that the threat of bombs will soon seem to be ancient history for our children.

Yours faithfully,


Reading, Berkshire
