âAct of heroismâ as drunk sailor is pulled from water - Local - Portsmouth News
So you can just get in a taxi and drive right into Portsmouth Naval Base without encountering a guardroom or any other ID checks?
I'm more interested in what has happened in Kent Constabularly this week. No stories of the (seemingly ubiquitous) Bent Kent Copper holding the head of a perp in a fountain?
A one, a one, two, a one, two, three, four
How do you know there were no ID checks or Guardroom?
The driver was concerned at the sailor’s drunken state and spoke to Ministry of Defence police officers on his way out of the base.
That sparked a search for a man which ended in the rescue.
Hopefully the Policewoman, recieves a commendation.
Everyday police officers do things like this and no one knows about it.
Good on her.
RIP to this bloke who was responding to an incident to help the public and paid the ultimate price.

No and no.
How did our inebriated chum get past the guardroom and into the main base in his taxi then?
It's really rather simples…
Taxi stops at gate, driver and passenger flash ID, gate gives the driver a vehicle pass and in he goes.
Christ, so there are all sorts of taxi drivers cutting around Portsmouth Naval Base?
No but his Ipod got wet & is fucked.
You've never got a taxi onto camp before? It's not exactly the most shocking revelation to ever come out of defence, is it?
I've even heard wild rumours of Tesco delivery vans and even fast food deliveries being allowed onto camps.
It was the late 90's when I was in and security was generally quite slack but they never let taxis or fast food deliveries past the gate - it used to really annoy the guard commanders on the night shift because they'd have to ring the Duty Room and tell us when our indian food had arrived.
Stanley Fort in HK, the fecking bus used to come through camp!
Pizza deliveries at night were often stopped by guard, checked to see contents, if wanted inside guardroom, never it made it past gate!
Well you do now. In Tidworth VCP there is a list of approved Taxi companies that are allowed onto camp...
Separate names with a comma.
