‘WE live in worrying times. Some would say they are dangerous. So why did three schoolboys think it was a good idea to take a picture of an official lamp post?

Photos? The Sun says only one photo was taken. Was it one or was it more? While the Sun checks it sources, and the police interview the officers involved, young Danny returns to his home and presents his father, Steve, with the document.

“I asked him whether he had been damaging the lamp post or causing a nuisance, but he insisted he hadn’t,” says Steve. “He’s not that kind of boy.”

But just what kind of a boy is he? And what are the odds on three boys all being enthused by a lamp post? The plot thickens…’
