Policemen by the dozen!!

Well, I think I spoke too soon, on hoping it was spring!.....
today its gone quite cold again and the wind!.... very, very strong.

Infact a shopping street in our town had to be closed today because some tiles blew off one of the properties into the road. Luckily as far as I know, no-one was hurt by them. But - you never saw so many policemen, traffic wardens and other officials. Police cars with blue flashing lights blocked each end of the road for hours. And all for a couple of roof tiles. Wonder how many we`d have seen if it had been something really serious?!

Don`t get me wrong, I know they had to do their job to keep people safe, but.... if did seem a bit of an excessive quantity of them.

And.... to top it all, the television camera crew arrived as well !
