A police officer has been transferred from duties at a Channel crossing after a disabled child and his parents were detained under the Terrorism Act.
Julie Maynard, of Ware, Hertfordshire, was taking a day trip to Calais through the Channel Tunnel in Folkestone, Kent.
The detective constable accused Ms Maynard and her husband Leslie Coombs of trafficking her son Joshua, 12.
Now, I know a thing or two about child trafficking, and there are ways of broaching the subject and ways not to. This was a way not to.
Even if they were guilty of child trafficking, why in the name of fuckety-fucking-fuck was an arrest made under the terrorism act?
Still, it is good to see Kent Police taking some positive action, I just hope the DC is thoroughly ashamed of herself.
Watch yourself, just look the wrong way at the wrong copper (and no, not all of them, not even most of them) and it'll be 9 hours in the box for you. Very poor, this is not the action expected of what used be the most reputable police force (and not bloody service) in the world.
