Ooh, it has been a long time since I have awarded my prestigious and world famous "Prats of The Week" Award.
Time, I think, to make another award.
This week the award goes to Devon and Cornwall police.
Ask Alma Harding (a retired postmistress of 63), of Kenton Exeter, who tackled a yoof with that most dangerous of weapons, a rolled up copy of church council minutes.
Mrs Harding was returning from a church council meeting, and was crossing the village green. Thereupon she encountered some "lippy" 13 year old and his mates, who swore at her when she told them to stop playing football near some flowers that she had planted on the green.
Mrs Harding therefore remonstrated with them, and "brushed" the boy across his cheek with the paper.
Needless to say, this being Nanny Britain, the boy's mother felt that this was an affront to her son and lodged a complaint.
Mrs Harding now faces a police investigation into claims of common assault, which carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail.
Mrs Harding said:
"I have done nothing wrong. It would not have hurt the boy. It was only rolled up paper and I am a little old lady."
Devon and Cornwall police said Mrs Harding would be interviewed "in the next couple of weeks".
Shouldn't common sense dictate that this matter be dropped?
Devon and Cornwall police, well deserving Prats of The Week.
