See an article about the police holding 3 men for retrieving food waste from Iceland supermarket and holding them for 19 hours while dusting off their arcane law books to find one applicable to the case.Surely the police should arrest themselves for wasting their own time – along with the Crown Prosecution Service.

Three charged with stealing food from skip behind Iceland supermarket
