Recently I spent a day on Portobello Market in London. Two police officers walked past; one was a tall bobby, the other a minute woman police constable. The WPC especially caught the attention: she was a mere five foot but kitted out in the full uniform. I could almost have put her into a box and taken her home.
Is it just the way the news is reported or is the authority of the police declining? Earlier this year Gloucestershire police were trying to find a man who was following women in the woods. The man never laid a finger on these women, but he frightened them. He was dressed as a smurf.
Find out why the police spokesman said: ‘We can’t confirm the story, but it is the fact that we have arrested a goat.’
