Helicopter - last night
« on: July 16, 2009, 08:33:46 am »
Does anyone know anything about the helicopter last night about 2am. Seemed to be flying very low and had the search light on for a time?

May or may not be related, but the cash machine in the village has been badly smashed up.

I would hope they didnt spend the time and money on helicopter waking us all up int he middle of the night for some money from a cash machine. Presumably it was a serious crime involving violence?

No - it was right over MY house.  My wife told me.  I managed to sleep through everything (God bless Adnams Broadside).

Apparently the local constabulary had all roads to the village blocked off (3 police cars in Bluebridge Road) in an attempt to catch the perpetrators.

It's a very small step from ATM violence to 'a serious crime involving violence' and I for one am delighted to see the boys and girls in blue reacting promptly and in numbers.  Well done.

Never heard a thing despite being only a few doors away from sharks - the power of beer  :icon_jokercolor:
