Letter: Tyre slasher is still at large

After several weeks Julian Grew, the tyre slasher, is still at large after failing to turn up in Beverley Magistrates’ Court after being granted bail by Hull Magistrate’s Court. Prior to being caught he was living rough so some local agency must have found him somewhere to live so that he could be bailed.

Should the agency who found him an address have been responsible for ensuring him attended court? Presumably it is us law abiding taxpayers who are bearing the costs of all this.
