Don't be surprised if you knew nothing about this, the British police and media like to keep these incidents under wraps. Of course, in these enlightened days of multi format communications, it is becoming harder to do so.
As usual the police on the ground did their best, but the hierarchy let its political leanings show. Over 15 hours to attend, then multiple officers, armed response officers, and a helicopter; all out looking for who knows what, 15 hours later; apparently it was hostages.
The injured criminal, who allegedly has a string of convictions for burglary, assault, and weapons charges, was questioned but not even arrested, let alone prosecuted. Whilst the wronged farmer was arrested and prosecuted, but was thankfully found not guilty in 24 minutes by a jury. Now all the farmer has to do is pay the in excess of £30,000.00 court fees, and try to get his shotgun back.
