The strike only covers non-life threatening incidents. You surely didn't think they would refuse to turn out to something serious?!!

I wonder how she managed that, all by herself on dry roads with super visibility. Tut tut, women, they make great cakes but not great drivers.

I live near a pub so always know when they are serving for sports events in the morning like today. Drunk drivers are appalling at any time of the day and having to put up with them after morning drinking now is really bad.
It could be stopped in Poole if the council would put restrictions on licenses, which they have the power to do.

Why do the police use three words when one word would be perfectly good English - 'now' instead of 'at this time'?
