Going home late one Friday night down a local country lane I noticed a Panda car (Austin 1300) parked by a gateway with a car off the road in that gateway. The Copper was shining his torch inside the vehicle.
When I saw my brother, who was also a Copper, the next day I asked why the Copper was doing that. After all it was a regular haunt for 'courting?' couples.
He said, 'You never know, the lady in the car may be being raped or worse so worth a check'. I said if they are 'at it' are they committing an offence? 'All depends' he says 'if the woman becomes abusive to the Police Officer, he can do the bloke for having an offensive person on his weapon!'
