Letter: Putting the cop back into helicopter

Click to follow
Sir: The issue of going out on the beat raised at the police conference at Brighton strikes a chord.

In Brighton itself we are plagued by a noisy, and no doubt expensive, helicopter. Like the swallow, it appears with the spring; then, however, it adopts the habits of the seagull, and spends most of its time skimming along the sea-front. One had not realised that the major crime problem in Brighton was daylight smuggling.

Yours truly,


Brighton, Sussex
