I AM writing to you mainly because I do not know who to write to, so I hope you can help.

On July 2 my son-in-law appeared in court to defend himself against being accused, I think, of assault.

A man verbally abused his wife, my daughter, as she unloaded her shopping from her car because she was parked close to his house. It was in Chapel Lane, Wimblington, where there is very little space for so many cars.

When my son-in-law arrived home he confronted his neighbour who reported him to the police.

It resulted in a court case in which he was ordered to do community service and he was given a sentence suspended for a year.

Of course my son-in-law has lost his job, which points to the fact how do you live with no income? There is a very simple and short explanation of the events.

It was made much more complex by the police, solicitors and the magistrates' court when it could all have been cleared up quite simply, at no expense to all of these organisations.
