CHERYL GIBBS: Inspirational Katie touched the hearts of so many in her short life

Have your say

I’m puzzled as to why anyone would need the button on my front doorbell.

All that’s left is the plastic case that attached it to the door frame.

Of all things to be stolen from the front of your house, the doorbell button must surely be the most mindless?

Go on, take the plants, the big rocks or even our dustbins. I can kind of see the value in doing that.

But taking a useless piece of plastic? That baffles me.

I’d invested a massive £30 in the system that played Play Up Pompey when the button was pushed.

The new, basic one cost £5 and I’ve connected the casing to the mains.

They’ll get a shock taking that one!
