the police are cretins

according to the press report -

"He also went to the scene and told officers it was not necessary to blow it up, but was arrested and taken into custody for questioning.

He was bailed pending further enquires and the matter was passed to Ofcom who took over the investigation from Kent Police."

what a farce!!
