I live in a very quiet road. I think a car backfired in 1994 but that's about the most excitement we've had in the last 20 years we've lived here. But, we've just had what I think qualifies as the most exciting event in the street since it was built in 1908.
I was excitedly called to the front room and saw four policemen straight outside our house arresting a young man and divesting him of a large bag.
You don't often see a police officer at all these days. But whenever do you see five police officers and two police cars together in the same ten square metres in front of your own house?.....rare or what?
