Outside my house was an abandoned suitcase which I called in to the local OB, they were round quite quickly, which is good, I pointed out the relevant item, left by a bus stop. PC gets out and rattles it, presumably to check for trembler switches, then unzips it and checks for anti handling devices, then puts it in the back of his waggon and carts it off. My questions is are these; First; Do the plod treat all reports as unlikely, so shake rattle and roll? Second; Have they just got fatalistic, as in 'Ninety nine times out of a hundred etc etc Finally do they have no SOP's for reports like these? This is no WAH I am not nor ever have been a journalist. But the size of bang the luggage could have made? By the way I watched it all from behind hard cover, my sprogs were at the back end of the house, I am devout coward.
