Sussex police officer sentenced for false cash claim

Quote:
A former police officer has been given a suspended prison sentence after he tried to claim £3,500 handed in to police belonged to him. ........

The court heard Yeats spotted an entry on an incident log in July that a cash-filled bag had been handed in by a member of the public who found it next to a footpath near Plumpton Racecourse.

He claimed his wife dropped it the day before, but colleagues became suspicious because the poor state of the money suggested it had been in the open longer than that.
They called a landline number for a Kirk Rose, but when he answered he said he had no knowledge of the money.

The calls were eventually traced back to Yeats's police-issue mobile phone.
Full story from BBC

I doubt it, perspective and all that. However, I think those bollards are removable.

Re: FAIL of the day

It does easy... post are approx 3.9 slab widths apart.. Van is about 3.5

You'd have about 60mm free either side...


Women drivers need not apply

I think you'll find that these chaps have just installed these bollards. None are removable but one will be shortly

Do not skip this one. I still can't stop laughing. Brilliant work.




Text from Youtube page


Chinese President Hu Jintao is visiting Washington D.C. this week to meet with Barack Obama and talk about trade deficits, the yuan and North Korea. Watch as Hu flies in on China's new stealth jet and literally raises hell.

If it doesn't fit -> FAIL
Presumably the bollards are there to stop vehicles.
So if it does fit ->FAIL
