Pet distress
I have been a tenant of Newark and Sherwood Homes for many years and have always been fairly treated.

I was appalled, however, to read that Mr Alan Bexon is being made to give up his much-loved pet dog, despite undergoing treatment for cancer (Cancer Patient Is Told To Get Rid Of His Pet Dog, Advertiser, August 20). This dog will be a great source of comfort and help to Mr Bexon at this time.

I am undergoing treatment for cancer and my elderly cat is my best friend and a huge comfort to me so I can understand the distress this poor man must be going through.

I hope Newark and Sherwood Homes will reconsider its policy or at least offer him accommodation where he can live with his pet.

Crossing points
THE dangers of pedestrians misusing rail track crossings should be clear to all. Some people, however, seem to think it is worth risking their lives to save just a few minutes of their time.

Network Rail has closed a pedestrian crossing over the East Coast Mainline at Newark’s Whitehouse Lane level crossing — known locally as Hatchet’s Lane — after three serious incidents over the summer.

In each case train drivers were forced to apply emergency brakes to avoid a potential tragedy.

There can be frustrating waits for motorists and pedestrians alike but, as Network Rail, says, level crossings are not time-wasters, they are there to save lives.
