Hope you get it all sorted soon and if I spot one whilst Im down here at the weekend I will knock them off their bike.

This religion of process is a bug not a feature. How many teams are there? I don't want teams I want a police force that does policing. i realise you are being helpful, so thankyou, but you might take on board that the problem is deeper than getting attention paid to a particular incident. The police force is institutionally processist, institutionally PC and institutionally unfit for purpose despite employing plenty of fine people.Moan, moan, moan...

I've had contact with the Sergeant and found him to be very helpful.
