MADAM – Re your ‘Staff sub headline’ in the SNJ August 20 page four.

‘Appeal to find bike stolen by towpath’.

Incorrect and a terrible misuse of our beautiful language, English.

Please note: Towpaths are inanimate objects incapable of stealing anything.

It would also be incorrect to state: ‘Appeal to find bike stolen from towpath,’ as this would imply that the towpath owned the bike.

Your sub headline should have read: ‘Appeal to find bike stolen away from the towpath”.
