Just For A Change - A Local Story

From my local newspaper, the Witney Gazette, comes a story about a man arrested and questioned for 7 hours in regard to the fact he had an ornamental pig in his garden.

The complainant was his next door neighbour, who just happens to be a policeman!

Admittedly the story is short on detail, but one wonders whether the arrest on suspicion of harassment was to do with the dispute over the garden path and the pig was an excuse.

What is troubling is that the police removed someone from the presence of an 86 year old woman without apparently considering it wise to alert social services. If John Ablett did in fact inform the police, at the time of his arrest, he was his mother's carer then their action is doubly troubling.

Snout so queer as folk, is there?
