Supt Andrew Murray said those involved have been spoken to and advised that their actions were a "bad idea".

Them shields aren't cheap. They'll be using cop cars to go to the chippy next.

Looks like fun. Obviously on duty, so deserved to be reprimanded. Keep it to off-hours, you're a policeman, ffs.

Good on them I say - they're only human after all. The snow brings out the child in most people. I know my Mum was like a child today telling me that she'd walked on the virgin snow on the golf course this morning raftl

At least it shows how solid and tough the riot shields are - he went a long way on such a little bit of plastic wink
