On night I was driving my patrol car around an estate in the town. I’d just done a stop check on a vehicle, checked out the driver & car & then let it go on its way.
I got a call over the radio, “Are you currently driving up London Road?”
“Well can you slow down very carefully because your clipboard, hat & torch are on the roof.”
I did slow down very carefully & sure enough my gear was still on the roof of the car.
I expect a certain man in Essex is wishing that he’d only left a bit of paperwork & uniform on the roof of his car. The BBC is reporting that he managed to leave Ã‚Â£80,000 on his car roof when he drove off. Needless to say by the time he realised & went back to check there was no sign of the money.
The story does not advise why he happened to have eighty grand to put on his car roof.
