Moat cop’s hair hell!

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

THE TOP cop tasked with catch­ing fugi­tive killer Raoul Moat has kicked off — be­cause peo­ple took the piss out of her HAIR.

Northum­bria Po­lice chief con­sta­ble Sue Sim says she was the brunt of jokes in news­pa­pers dur­ing the six-day hunt for the 38-year-old.

She reck­ons she would not have been sub­jected to “hurt­ful jibes” if she’d been a “short fat man”.

Speak­ing to a meet­ing of Sixth Form girls at New­cas­tle Busi­ness School said: “It was quite hurt­ful to read what the me­dia said about my hair and make-up.

“I can't imag­ine that they’d have done the same if I was a short fat man.

“But I had an im­por­tant job to do and I had to get on with it.”
