Re: Apparently he was allowed to continue his journey

In most parts of the UK, the average beat bobby or traffic cop still doesn't carry a gun. Few are armed for "instant access" unless on specified duties at certain location, guns are more likely to be in a safe in the back/boot of the car. Tazers are becoming standard issue though.
