"Don't you worry Sir, Health and Safety will be along shortly!"
Almost unbelievable, but it follows on from the PCSO's not wanting to get wet saving a child from drowning, and is probably inevitable in this climate of ambulance chasing lawyers and Health And Safety legislation enacted by the Nanny State, but it is doing nothing to help the Police Farce regain public support or trust.
Police officers prevented neighbours from trying to rescue people from a fire, and of course, were not allowed to do anything themselves except wait for the Fire Brigade. Then they were praised by their superior officer.
Old time coppers must be appalled.
