police! drama! vehicles!

It's been - at least it was, until a couple of hours ago - another pleasant family day. We swam in the morning, then went to the library after shopping - I reserved the rather brilliant Bollocks To Alton Towers (by the authors of The Framley Examiner and borrowed a couple of gardening books (The City Gardener and One-Hour Garden). Hopefully they'll do me well - with any luck, I'll read some of it before embarking on the next bit.

Three police vehicles.. today's record.Once Christopher and I had returned from a haircut and brief shopping trip in town after lunch, though, we heard a 'blump!' noise resounding through the house, obviously coming from next door.

We'd seen a policeman wandering up the road earlier - and, to be honest, had our suspicions about the young men who were staying next door, but we weren't really expecting a full-on raid!

Next thing we saw, a dog-handler was persuading his alsation back into the police car, and a rather sheepish occupant of the house was being led, handcuffed, to the front of the house, while the officer holding him awaited the arrival of another vehicle.

A few more police people carriers and vans came and went - the record was three at any time in front of the house - but I didn't get any further information from the officer I spoke to; he said that they'd been doing naughty things in the house next door.

From the collection ot items that ended up on the low-loader outside, it would appear that it had something to do with bits of cars - there was an engine (which certainly caused the two policemen and the recovery lorry driver a struggle to move!), an axle assembly and wheels not to mention bits of bodywork.. more than that, I have absolutely no idea...

That's my anecdote of Luton Life today, then... back to work tomorrow, where I daresay it'll be a lot less interesting!
