Minor worries

From Mr Richard Abram Sir: The spirit of the Climbie caseworkers (How welfare killed Victoria', 1 February) is not confined to the social services. The other morning at rush hour, I reported to staff at my local railway station that three small boys were indulging in extremely dangerous horseplay at the platform edge and on the track itself. I was told that they could do nothing and was offered a 'Customer Comment Form'.
