And I bet they did!
The police were called by a ‘concerned passer-by’ with reports of ‘gunshots’ from the Sports Equipment factory in Cheadle Hume, Manchester.
The Armed Response Team called upon the occupants to ‘come out’, presumably with their hands up, but were confronted with five or six blokes who had been playing cricket inside their workspace. The ‘gunshots’ came from the ball hitting the metal door! Just goes to show, you just can’t be too careful.
Mohammed Ijaz must count himself fairly lucky he was not confronted by the same crew who planned this, as the outcome might have been rather different!
The Police had rather better luck when they attended a road accident, when they arrested a man in charge of an ‘offensive weapon’!
