LETTER: Strange sight of bobby on beat

Today I saw a strange sight in Haywards Heath – a man in what looked like police uniform and a police helmet - who reminded me of the good old days when uniformed police constables used to patrol the streets of just about every town.

And suddenly it dawned on me – it WAS a police constable … the first I had seen in the 23 years I’ve lived here. I went up to him and said: “I know why you’re here and even though it’s a tragic reason, it’s wonderful to see a uniformed officer on the beat in my home town. Thank you so much for being here.”

He seemed delighted with my sentiments!
