Best thing that can happen to Leicester would be a FOBB, 5 minute warning should suffice.

Hmmm, looks like it's not just the suspicious package that should have been blown up, but the owner too.

I would have a little more patience of the press if they were at least accurate in their reporting.

It's not like they're a new or secret Unit. (Although only exceptional SNCOs are permitted to serve there :wink: )
