Thanks Victoria1st,

We did read all this, but by all accounts this was very little, even within the forum. This was not viewed by others not aware of the forum.
Did any newspaper report this. Also more importantly is this a warning or a one off. Will things get worse. This may sound like an over reaction but surely it is a normal reasonable question to ask.
