Yeah, does anyone remember an average guy (according to description) from four days ago? Why can't the police ask for assistance in a shorter time frame, or is this how long it takes for them to get the paper-work in order?

Incidentally, can the echo reporters report properly. Headline states "late-at-night" since when is between noon and 12.18pm at night?

its a fair point. It could barely be any further away from late at night.

Normally this sad lot get their thrills at Studland Beach, where apparently such behaviour is sanctioned by the National Trust and Dorset Police.

Yep, that description of him is 'pretty accurate'. Just seen him walk past the window. Oh and again, and again, oh look, there he goes again. He keeps changing his clothes.
