Cops demand money back from Police Minister

Suffolk Police have apparently written to Police Minister Vernon Coaker asking for £160,000 to cover the cost of policing the PM's summer holiday last year.

The local paper is reporting that the Browns' visit during July and August led to a major security operation that stretched the force's meagre budget.

The trip was meant to boost tourism in the area - next year maybe they should just get the deck chairs out and sit in the back garden.

Dig a bit deeper Lobbydog. When the Cops do that its because they messed up and blew the identical amount of money by messing up a budget and the Chief constable wants their ass for it. Somewhere a Superintendant thought he was the first plod to have tried this trick. I bet the dog ate his homework too.
