College student felt compelled to write into The Rant section on the BBC Wales NE website after witnessing an elderly person apparently harassing a group of young people. She says: "To all of the elderly people of Wrexham I am sorry that you dislike the young and I'm sorry if the stereotypes of modern youths don't suit you but don't assume we are all bad people and remember you were young once!"

There's support for teens from other people too. In Buckley, Wendy says: "People grumble about the youth causing havoc but is there anywhere or anybody trying to make a place for them to go, somewhere they could perhaps learn to play instuments (band types) snooker, pool, roller skating, the things teenagers like, not what adults think they should like?"

In Corwen, Ffion & Andrew are calling for action. And Michael wants to see more facilities for young people in Flint & Connah's Quay.
