Cops parked ‘il­le­gally’ to pick up pasty

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

HUN­GRY cop­pers were snapped park­ing their pa­trol car il­le­gally – as they went to buy a PASTY for lunch.

Two of­fi­cers are now be­ing in­ves­ti­gated af­ter they were pho­tographed nip­ping into eaterie, Ye Olde Pasty Shoppe.

Park­ing is pro­hib­ited out­side the shop and the coun­cil has de­ployed its CCTV spy car in re­cent months to crack­down on wrongly parked cars.

The po­lice pair were ob­served by an on­looker stop­ping in the road be­fore go­ing into the shop.

The man – who took a picture of the car out­side the shop in Bolton, Greater Manch­ester– said they re­turned about a minute later with one of them car­ry­ing a small bag.

Supt Stephen Ni­bloe of Bolton Po­lice said: “We are ex­am­in­ing the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing this case.”
