It was a busy night for police

In the 24 hours from midday yesterday to midday today officers dealt with: 29 arrests, being sworn at (lots), found ten missing people, took one child in to police protection, drove an ambulance to hospital so that both crew could look after the patient, recorded 80 crimes, cleaned the van's cage twice, once after it was covered in blood, other after it was spat in, responded to 148 incidents, given first aid to injured people, and were asked for lifts home by drunk people.

“Amongst that we've been handed a mobile phone which was found on Hallgate, which we'd like to reunite with its owner.”
