We understand that officers had to deal with around six plants each in a single afternoon session. However, PCSO’s were on hand to assist with rolling and make trips to the shops.
The exercise, at Mersyside Fire Service’s training facility in Kirkdale, was intended to demonstrate the dangers of getting utterly blazed to the general public.
Chief Constable Bert Lynch told us this morning that his officers were willing to do everything within their power to protect the public – even if it meant smoking every plant in Merseyside themselves.
“I just love these guys.” Lynch insisted. “I love them so much it’s, like, spiritual or some shit, you know?”
“Baz, pop back to Spar for some more Wispa’s lad.”
Lynch was also keen to point out that incorrectly wired farms could be “The ultimate buzzkiller,” by causing house fires. He suggested that electrics were installed by a fully qualified electrician and inspected by his officers.
“If you have a farm in your home, give us a ring at the station and we’ll pop round and have a look at it for you.” He offered helpfully. “Just to make sure everything is safe, obviously.”
