Armed police hunt teenage girl carrying a tennis racket in Worcestershire
To Droitwich. Worcestershire, where armed police have sealed the High Street as they search for a teenage girl carrying a gun.
West Mercia Police said CCTV pictures reveals the girl was not carrying a gun. She was carrying a tennis racket and a set of tennis balls.
Carrying a tennis racket outside the hours of Wimbledon is odd but not a criminal offence, let alone one warranting a police bullet. But, then, none of these were capital offences either:
