Girls like that never leave Civic with the smallest fat man at 12.30 am on a Sunday morning.

Called On the Staircase.

Supposed to be 4.

Plod must have been distracted. Can’t imagine for the life of me by what…

Let me guess, judging by their shabby clothes they live in gov housing, go by the names of shazzer etc…

…and they listen to rap music.

Who was it who was complaining here about how little use “grainy CCTV images” would be?

Probably me. Colour me pleasantly surprised.

Quite possibly me too, tthough I’m going to be a little more circumspect. This is (are?) a new camera. Compare with the story in the CT this week about the Durham pub. CCTV quality is always going to be dependent on age, quality/cost of equipment, maintenance and so on. And whether there is anybody watching (clearly on this occasion there wasn’t). The deterrent value of the camera on this occasion was zero. The investigative and probative value much higher. Maybe the publicity will improve the future deterrent value, but that’s a reasonably long shot. Deterrence and drunkenness are not entirely compatible (I’m referring to CCTV in city centres generally, not this incident).

No, it’s their behaviour that gives it away.

Now if it had been a statue of an ADFA boy, it’d be more believable.

I can’t believe that the high cost of public art doesn’t provide enough strength in the materials to stop a couple of skinny teenage girls.

The statue has now been handed in to police.

We should all blame Simon Corbell, he started this fad by removing the statue of limitations

Looks like she is making a call, and we know the time and location, Should be pretty easy to ID with the assistance of a couple of mobile call service providers.

Assuming she hasn’t nicked the phone too

Might as well have taken a selfie and put it on the AFP facebook page….

How do you know they didn’t?

Anyway, it’ll even up the gender balance in the stocks.

And here I was thinking that it would be a major undertaking involving angle grinders and maybe an oxy torch. It seems like all you need is two possibly mildly intoxicated teenage girls and a bit of effort and you can score yourself a Fat Man.

certainly makes a change from spotty teenage boys in hoodies.

a proud day for gender equality!
