A “suspicious sighting” triggers the despatch of “numerous officers”? Does somebody with influence live in the area? Nobody else gets that kind of response, even in daylight.

Perhaps it was a bearded enricher to gain that response one would assume.

IF so, best be on the safe side as after carnage it is too late. A lot are down on holiday here so ‘keep em peeled’

Could you be any more racist? Given your very obvious colossal stupidity, I sadly suspect that yes, you could.

It was probably an island driver who lost his car in a dich, or it could be someone who lost his rubber dinghy and wanted to go back to France when he saw the locals…

So plato, what is your own great thinking as to why several officers were called to apprehend just one person, who, as yet has not been shown to cause any crime, IF it were not something like the risk of a potential terror attack?

Or do you only come on here to ‘be offended’ if so, I suggest you don’t bother.

A perfectly reasonable assumption by the poster in the circumstances I would say.

Never mind the suspicious man, look at the state of your roads and street lighting.
