Northamptonshire has announced that ALL its tendered service money with be "chopped" from April.
The local "plod" is seen trying to persuade the protesters to "come alonga me quietly" and get "banged to rights". The driver is trying a look of abject horror but hasn't won any prizes at RADA!

P.S. Maybe it's the latest craze. This from the Plymouth Herald on 6th April. See Plymothian Transport blog (here).
