I'm so glad I got that on camera

This clip has already done the rounds but I've only just seen it so it still might worth sharing

Derbyshire Police motoring into action during those floods the other week...




The respect coming off the amused onlookers is so tangible you could cut it with a knife

Courtesy of the kind of people who think Robocop was too much of a free-thinker...

"The rolling hills that play host to the Glastonbury festival have a reputation among cannabis aficionados of being the safest joint in the country to, well, roll up a joint.

But this year potsmokers will not able to lounge under trees with their customary mellow insouciance, casually blowing fragrant smoke towards uninterested police officers.

For the police are coming equipped with shoulder-mounted cameras that will transmit live footage back to a surveillance unit, forcing officers to take action or risk the wrath of their superiors.

Each officer will be issued with a jacket containing a camera, recording device and transmitter, which will beam information to a control room. The officer in charge will also be able to track his officers’ positions using a global-position-ing system device sewn into the jacket."

LOL. No doubt the majority of the country watched in empathy with the onlookers.
