And let’s not forget the use of the helicopter for goodness knows how many hours, at £1000+ per hour!
When I enquired why the helicopter was in use, I was informed that ‘ If the lads made a run for it, they could be tracked’.
The number of Police on site could have held hands and encircled the building to prevent a get away.
Ah we’ll, I suppose the excitement for them was better than booking motorists ‘speeding’ at 32 mph.
no helicopter costs for a start. And awfully cheap given how long the protest was (plus debrief time) given there were over 100 staff deployed.
I suspect they were actually higher, when further things such as solicitors/court/jailing costs etc. are taken into account it will make this episode look even more of a joke. When I think of things that I am informed cannot be addressed in our community due to an apparent lack of council funds it’s ridiculous that so much tax payers money was wasted getting a couple of wazzocks off a roof (that’s right I’m bringing the word wazzock back!).
The demo for the racists & fascists EDL cost 217k in police costs that was only for a few hours and used less policemen.
