    • Poor sod, the job is dangerous enough without thugs trying to maim or wound them. A speedy recovery and support for the injured officer

    • There were a group of 4 or so teenagers shoplifting at coop by deptford bridge in the weekend. Whilst the staff were told, no action was taken. Reading this it was probably best not to confront them… Hopefully they were caught on CCTV…
