Tigerfish,
I think you make a good point about the degree of granularity concerning the police communications, but I do not know where you have picked up the idea that the aircraft elected to hover...

Timing is always a consideration, and it does seem notable that this should happen more or less at the same time as England progress to the next stage of the World Cup in, err, ehm, Russia.
