I thought I needed to post this in a relatively public forum in an attempt to redress the balance somewhat; as certain individuals on this site sometimes seem to have an anti-police bias. To those that may take the p*ss out of this post, crack on - you don't matter. Yesterday evening I received the call every parent dreads - our daughter had just been involved in a multi car pile up on the A303. She had just left our house and was therefore only a few miles down the road and we were there within minutes. Thankfully, she was unhurt, but in a real state of shock and her car seemed to be a write off, as it was hit from the back and then shunted into another car. Anyway, to cut a long story short, the traffic police were soon on the scene and took control. The Police Sgt in particular was superb - calm, collected and totally in control of a pretty chaotic situation. We were at the scene for about 2 hours and in all that time, this guy was the model professional. Unsurprisingly, it turns out he was an ex-Serviceman (RAF) and he is a credit to our Police. Thank you and take a bow sir, from some very grateful parents.
