Police 'share frustration' over chuggers in Sheffield
Police in Sheffield say they share public frustration over so-called 'chuggers' in the city centre but claim action is being taken.
Charity muggers - as those stopping passers-by to ask for donations to their chosen cause have become known - are considered a nuisance by some people.
When officers conducted a public Q&A via Facebook, it was one of the first topics which arose.
Inspector John Mallows responded: "I share your frustration about the subject matter. The council is looking at the issue very closely and will be consulting the public in the very near future about issues such as the aforementioned which are directly impacting on the public when they are in the city centre.
