Mugged

Sir,

It may interest you to know the lengths to which people will go to obtain your magazine. Whilst staying in Nice for the Monaco Grand Prix and sitting quietly at an outside bar table having a drink and reading Motor Sport, I was "mugged" by about five youths who knocked me to the ground and started to kick etc. However, help was close by and they soon ran off and the only item they managed to take was a copy of Motor Sport.
