on the way home from work, turning into the street before mine, police with blue lights on but no siren's up head on the the road on was turning from, i turn and suspect they are on there way to an accident on the busy A road not far away, but no they turn into the same street i'm already on, still with lights on and no siren's, they over take me and the car in front and then turn their lights off, pull over at an angle, jump out and put cuffs on a man(he was a beefy well built guy as well) that was just on the street!!
wish i knew someone that lived in those flats to see if i could find out what was going on!!

Where do you live? I see this at least once a week in London.

Cabbagesaregreen Thu 06-Aug-15 19:21:45

You don't live in London then. As poster says you see this all the time.

That's nothing. I was walking the dog the other day in a very rural area where I never meet anyone and 3 armed police emerged from the bushes.

Erm, it's not entertainment you know, it's someone's life.

I live in the north of England and don't think it's that unusual.

LuisSuarezTeeth Thu 06-Aug-15 19:24:35

Don't be so nosy grin

Exactly Vatersay

If it's a domestic incident it might have left a frightened woman and children...

You must live somewhere nice. smile

We get helicopters with a search light hovering around sometimes! I imagine you can see them from quite a way off and we're in London so it could be anywhere but that's quite exciting, I like helicopters grin

Agree with Vatersay though the OP reminds me of my mum.

Do you live somewhere very quiet?

Cabbagesaregreen Thu 06-Aug-15 19:33:16

Whirlpool - you can follow flying squad on twitter so will then know what they're doing when you see them.

Do you live in Wales?

This is exactly my mother's response to any sort of emergency vehicle.

GemmaTeller Thu 06-Aug-15 19:42:37

Those bloody chinooks sure rattle our windows when they go over!!

MammaTJ Thu 06-Aug-15 19:43:36

That is somebody's life you are getting all excited over.

I'm sure the person he has just mugged or beaten up, or the person he has just sold drugs to or whatever would be really happy to know they have provided you with entertainment today!

Vatersay Thu 06-Aug-15 19:44:46

Mamma he could be innocent...

iklboo Thu 06-Aug-15 19:46:13

The copper chopper was a nightly visitor where we used to live.

MammaTJ Thu 06-Aug-15 19:47:01

Indeed Vatersay and he will be equally delighted to have provided entertainment!

It's human nature to be curious about these kind of things though!

Are you one of those idiots who posts on FB when they see an ambulance or police car asking if anyone knows what is going on? hmm like its an episode of eastenders. "What did i miss?"
