Remoan with Auntie. Peter Rhodes on BBC bias, heroic cops and a disappointing drama
MASSIVE respect to the cops who rushed into action and grabbed a man who was about to throw himself off a bridge over the M5 near Birmingham. A chief inspector declared that they had acted ‘without a thought for their own lives’. Hang on. What sort of policing is this? What, no full risk assessment? No request for back-up? No stern pointing-out that the officers in question may not have completed the requisite Swinging from High Bridges course? I can see this ending up in a disciplinary.
