"I'd given this new bobby his task for the day, which was to watch the VIP car park at an exhibition.
Nobody without a pass was to get in there.
So he gets in position, stands there a while, and then this Land Rover Discovery turns up, blacked-out windows, the lot.
He goes to the window, demands to see the guy's pass.
Hasn't got one.
"Well, you can't come on here then, this is for VIP's only!"
Anyway, the argument goes back and forth, getting more and more bitter, and the bloke's still not getting in.
He's the only copper I know of that's been told to sod off by the Duke of Edinburgh!"
