  • The bottom pic was during the Floods with the green land rover submerged up to its limits with PC 38 Bailey then of Barton Street Police Station, searching for a floating body in a car completely flooded, up to above its windows.
    Fortunately and with huge relief (which you might see in the Officers face) the body turned out to be a floating child’s seat in the car.
