A friend of mine in the office was just telling me a story about her uncle who lives just outside of Liverpool. The aunt was upstairs in the house tidying up when she heard a noise downstairs. She poked her head down over the banister and saw a rather scruffy bloke who she had never met before carrying a bag and looking very suspicious. She wasnât able to confront the youth so she did the next best thing, as advocated by our superb (shome mistake shurely â ed) politicians and called the police. When she was connected, the operator said that they had no one in the area to respond and told her to keep her head down. She was not happy with this response and called her husband who unfortunately for her was working at least an hour away. He did say leave it to him though. The husband rang the police and when asked for his emergency he said his wife had called in a burglar â âanyway lads, you donât have to come any more, Iâve shot himâ. There were four response vehicles and an armed police detachment at the house in five minutes.
