But, even worse than that it emerged this morning that the SY Police Helicopter is grounded!! :

South Yorkshire Police helicopter grounded for repairs

A police helicopter has been grounded for five months due to “substantial mechanical faults”, a force spokesperson has said.

“South Yorkshire Police said the helicopter was undergoing extensive repair work in Gloucester.”

The force said it also needed to recreate the aircraft’s logbook which had “gone missing”.

Is this a late April fools joke, I wonder? Unfortunately not! Truly incredible! Whelk stall  anyone?
