Any crime is distressing and we sympathise with (and have visited) the lady concerned but can I remind everyone of a recent Telegraph piece headed ' Britain tops European crime league'
"Britain has one of the worst crime rates in Europe, a report said yesterday.
It is the most burgled country in Europe, has the highest level of assaults and above average rates of car theft, robbery and pickpocketing. Only Ireland has a worse record.......
Estonia, Holland and Denmark make up the rest of the EU's five ''high-crime" nations. All had rates more than 30 per cent higher than the average. Spain, Hungary, Portugal and Finland had the lowest rates.......
Risks of being assaulted were highest in the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden and Denmark and lowest in Italy, Portugal, Hungary, Spain and France.......
Experiences with sexual violence were reported most often by women in Ireland, Sweden, Germany and Austria and least often in Hungary, Spain, France and Portugal."
I am not saying Spain is perfect, we must be as vigilant in San Cayetano as we are in London, Luton or Manchester (no disrespect intended) but also we must not let a few isolated events and a television programme spoil what I am sure is going to be a great experience for us all.
