Liverpool Street Station after the big match – a policeman’s view.

With more and more railway photographers getting in trouble for taking photographs of trains and stations, Salimfadhley’s photograph of London’s Liverpool Street after a Spurs vs. Chelsea football deserves special commendation. Apparently the police were there to keep the Chelsea supporters inside the Railway Tavern. I must say can think of a much more enjoyable and cheaper way of keeping me sitting inside a pub.

Meanwhile the Daily Mail has just published a story of how coach driver Andrew Poole had his 30th birthday barbecue raided by armoured police because he had invited 17 of his friends via Facebook. The moral of the story seems to be if you are organising a party and would like the police to chase your guests away before they can help themselves to your food and booze, Facebook is your answer!
