also more concerned about the road
Yes, I was wondering as well why the police farce always have to act like complete tarts in these situations. They just seem to get their jolley by closing down roads, and transport systems in general, at the slightest provocation. Two juicy examples come to mind:
Was this dopehead killed on the tracks ? Nope. So why couldn't the police just require trains not to stop at that station ? Not dramatic enough, obviously.
2. When the M25 fuel price protests were on, the Police helped by prohibiting car traffic from using the outside lane `to keep it free for emergency services'. That was just SO helpful, wasn't it ?
