Police Enquiry

The local scandal of the police not responding to a 999 call from St Nicholas primary school has now reached the national papers.

The Daily Mail reports:

"An inquiry has been ordered after police failed to respond to five 999 calls from a primary school reporting an armed intruder.

The man broke into the school brandishing a lump of wood and threatened staff by telling them 'you're dead'. "

If this allegation is fact, there should be an investigation of the highest order and the fastest possible judgement to ensure that nothing can ever happen like this again... ever! Heads must roll...preferably the top one, and then quickly followed by all the incapable's next.

Excellent. I hope this highlights the local police's indifference to many people's calls.

I haven’t heard about this local scandal so I clicked on the link to read about what had happened, how odd no mention of St Nicholas Primary School which is located at Down Barton Road St. Nicholas-at-Wade Birchington, head teacher Mr A.J. Taylor - B.Ed (Hons) am I stupidly missing something, did they by chance change the name when not one was looking or maybe its just a case that you should actually read the article you are commenting about because the Daily Mail reports the school as being St Stephen's Junior School in Canterbury head teacher Stuart Pywell

Wonder where I picked-up St Nicholas from. It's either a slip of the pen or from another earlier report - Your'e quite correct.
