This "Village" is constantly bombarded with emergency service vehicles racing around with sirens that can be heard for miles. 15 years ago none of this happened. I think the police in particular over react to these minor incidents and that they are like kids playing with new toys using any excuse to hammer the throttle and put their sirens on for the thrill of it rather than for the need of it. It wont be long before we have a "blue light death", what they will no doubt call a regrettable accident whole attending a so called emergency. The police have already ran their jeep at a child running of from them on a push bike and while doing this they lost control and nearly crashed into a pensioners house and garden. It is time to stop this dangerous practise of police speeding under the excuse of attending an emergency. They appear to believe that every time they are called out they have to race to the scene with sirens going and charge through the village putting people at more risk than the good they are meant to be doing. Don't bother complaining by the way because the complaints procedure is so corrupted it only serves to prevent them being brought to book.
