Well maybe the police in Essex are a bit slow but we had a visit from the local plod last year after a motorist reported a plane "crashing" in a field. Despite being less than 2 miles from the police station the copper knew nothing baout the strip. Good local knowledge there!
Also when we had a couple of break ins at our strip in Herts we had to go to the local museum to guide the police in on both occasions as the first lot had not told the second lot how to find us. We have a windsock up a 20 foot pole as a guide!
The local police helicopter crew knows where we are as they land for tea on occasion but the local station seem to struggle!
