While driving from Sainsbury’s towards West Monkseaton Metro station, I noticed two police officers, one male and one female, riding bicycles along the pavement, side by side.
Walking in the opposite direction was a lady exercising her dog.
The officers rode either side of the lady as they chatted between themselves.
This lady was obviously affected by the situation because she stopped and turned around as if to indicate her disbelief at what had just occurred.
I feel that this sets a bad example to the general public when ‘officers of the law’ act in such a way.
And, I believe, this is also against the law.
