A picture apparently showing a a policeman carrying some Starbucks back to his vehicle by Eagles Meadow has prompted an apology.

The image, above, has been circulating on Facebook this morning and was taken looking at the pavement outside of Next on Eagles Meadow. The picture was submitted to the colourfully named “Parking Like A **** In Wrexham” page, with a mixed response but on the whole appearing to back the police officer’s actions.

Rowena posted up saying: “If I dialled 999 and needed help quickly, I wouldn’t want a copper to be wasting time running back to his police car which was parked in a bloody car park. Get real, we rely on the Police to be able to respond quickly when we need them so give them a break. He needed caffeine!” whereas Debbie summed up the contrary view: “One rule for us and a different one for them.”

Inspector Paul Wycherley said he was aware of the photograph that had been posted to the Wrexham.com Facebook page as well, saying: “Aware of a foto on FB of a PC parked on a pavement & yellow lines buying coffee @wrexham I apologise & will deal with the officer #standards”.
