Wild shooting carries danger

Sir,

I totally agree with the Nuthall residents letter about shooting around the Watnall, Nuthall and Swingate areas. Some days it seems to go on constantly and also very close to footpaths and roads, as I saw when out walking my dog.

I was walking down New Farm Lane at Nuthall, when a van was going down the lane shooting pigeons from the van while moving. New Farm Lane runs close to the motorway. One shot going astray could cause carnage on the M!.

I also hope the person shooting in Nuthall Bluebell wood on Sunday, September 4, realises how close he was to people walking on the footpaths through the woods.
