Mrs Perry said she assured the police officer that she would not do anything to disrupt the relay when it passes through Bridlington later this month.She should have laughed and hung up.
A spokesman for Humberside Police confirmed that words of advice were offered to a Bridlington woman following comments made about disruption to the Olympic Torch’s progress in advance of its forthcoming visit to the region.I've got some words of advice for Humberside Police, but as this is a family blog...
