Yob targeted home for learning disabled – then wrote apology letter to shook-up residents

A yob who targeted a care home for young people with learning disabilities was ordered to write a letter of apology – which was then read out to shook-up residents.

Neighbourhood police officers dealt with the teenage boy by telling him to make amends, after an incident at the Hemlington Hall care home on Sunday night.

The youth had recently moved to Hemlington, and his yobbish actions included running across the roof of the Nuneaton Drive building.

A Coulby Newham Neighbourhood Policing Team spokesman said: “We cannot underestimate the impact that this is having on these residents.

“If you are out and about and see youths causing anti-social behaviour in the vicinity of Hemlington Hall Care Home, please contact police on 101.

“Parents PLEASE know where your children are, challenge their behaviour and explain the negative impact this can have on people.”

A spokeswoman for the home, run by Voyage Care, said: “We take the safety of the people we support very seriously and our night staff at Hemlington Hall alerted the police to the incident immediately that they were aware of the situation.”

Hippy crack cannister found near Hemlington Hall
Separately, a canister of nitrous oxide, also known as “hippy crack”, was discovered close to the care home, in a public area near the grounds of the Hemlington Hall Academy primary school, on Sunday night.

The school tweeted a photo of the canister with the message “please be aware” – but say it had nothing to do with the school.
