RESIDENTS' champion Bill Blunn appeared on national television to tell the country about the anti-social behaviour and vandalism which has plagued Middlewich.
Bill, 62, was asked to appear on a Kilroy programme about the misery caused by anti-social behaviour.
It went out in the wake of the death of a pensioner who became so distressed by a gang of yobs' actions that he took his own life.
Bill, chairman of Newton Residents' Association, has experienced problems with youths in Middlewich and has launched a campaign to try and rid the town of anti-social behaviour.
Bill, who has been asked back on to a follow-up of the programme, said:
'There were some youths on the programme who had been terrorising people in their neighbourhood and they said they did it because they were bored and stressed out everyone laughed.
'I said if that's their excuse how do they think the elderly and disabled people they are terrorising feel?
'I said to them those people have contributed to this country all their working lives and they just want a bit of peace, but you are diminishing their quality of life. They didn't say much to that.'
Bill was asked on to the programme because he had asked youths in Middlewich to fill out a questionnaire, which host Robert Kilroy-Silk wanted to talk about.
