"Police's fridge-magnet calling card
An investigation has been launched into claims that cheeky police are said to have left a fridge-magnet calling card after smashing into the wrong house. Officers hunting a criminal recalled to prison for breaching his release conditions broke into the home of a couple in Oldham.

The family came home to find a hole in their back door, police in the yard, and fridge magnets rearranged to spell "OLDHAM TASK FORCE CALLED".

Aaron West, his partner Leeanne Baker, and their two-year-old son Leighton had only moved into the rented house in Letham Street, Hathershaw, 11 days earlier.

Mr West, 20, said: "It's pathetic and childish. I want a written apology. We came back from shopping to find the back door smashed in and on the kitchen work top. The police here didn't tell us much, so I went to the station to ask why. But when I told the desk sergeant I didn't know who they were looking for, they just weren't interested

When I came home I noticed the fridge magnets had been rearranged and said: `OLDHAM TASK FORCE CALLED'. "These are for children, they're not for the police to leave a message they've raided your house."

Police bosses have launched an investigation"

I am surprised plod could even spell all of those big words. If the guy by the 'fridge is chav scum,good drills.
If he is not,no doubt some hand wringing,followed by an ambulance chasing insurance company will be along soon to assist him during this trying and difficult time.

Don't see what the problem is. Leaving a calling card is not eco-friendly, and waking the chav up before his Giro arrives is liable to precipitate a violent incident.

Chav or not... Have a sense of humour. The force will already cugh up for a new door and no doubt a better one than he already had.

Look at the state of his mush next to that. You'd think they'd sh1t in his fridge. Its akin to when mothersget a photo taken next to their little angel who was SAVAGED by next doors hamster etc!

No doubt he will be "distressed, traumatised, prescibed antidepressants and unable to work".
Actually GMP paid him a compliment, in assuming he could read.
Just another boring tw@t after his 15 minutes of fame and £15,000 compensation.

How do we know he didn't do it himself? Call me Mr cynical but where there's blame..........

The guy by the fridge is a father to his partners child, they are a young family and don't deserve this. Would you like it? Has this anything to do with the class of person you are in this society?

In this case more the class of person you willingly associate with. Criminals. You are either for them or against them, if the latter then have nothing to do with them.
