By Nigel Somerville, The Deputy Sheriff of AIM | Sunday 28 June 2015
I am reminded of an old story – I think as told by Alan Coren on the BBC Radio 4 show, The News Quiz – of a man who called the police in the dead of night to report that there was a burglar in his garden shed stealing his tools. He was told that there wasn’t much could be done about it as there was nobody available to attend. A few minutes later the man phoned back to say that it was alright now, because he had shot the intruder. Within minutes his house was crawling with armed police and helicopters swirled the sky above. The burglar was arrested, unharmed. Afterwards, the police chief said to the man ‘I thought you said you had shot him’. The man replied ‘I thought you said there was nobody available to attend’.
