    Stephen Clarke, was accused of taking pictures of a sewer-grating in Manchester and arrested. Though the police couldn't find any photos of the sewer-grating on his phone (and even though "what a sewer grating looks like" isn't a piece of specialized terrorist intelligence), he was held on suspicion of planning an act of terror, imprisoned for two days while the police searched his home, his phone and his computer.http://www.channelm.co.uk/video_4x3.html?bcpid=1213934526&bctid=51725050 01

    I think the fascists were more lenient, Eddie.And KD, yeah I've never really trusted men with beards either, but it's no grounds to nick him

    *shakes head, tuts* Stephen Clarke, you say? Obviously a Muslim terrorist, eh?

    Not all terrorists are Muslim, listening to the accent he was probably a member of the sons of Cornwall.

    Monkey Space Pilot (El Capitan) wrote (see)Not all terrorists are Muslim, listening to the accent he was probably a member of the sons of Cornwall.......................who have a long and fearsome reputation for blowing grates up.Judging by the performance of the local road drainage over the winter it might not be a bad idea!

    Call me a pedant, but wouldn't the grate be made of steel? I couldn't see an aluminium one lasting very long

    I'd say it's fair enough. The City was in the middle of a big security operation, he was doing something suspicious (even just by having that awful beard) and I should imagine when he was questioned he was one of the lippy sorts.Besides, it serves him right for that ridiculous accent.

    Lighter so it easier to steal. And I think rusted steel looks pretty.
