image for Police Arrest Scoutmaster For "Being Unprepared"
Look at that stern look - he's not pleased

Police in the West Midlands have today arrested a Scoutmaster who, in a direct contravention of the ancient rules laid down by Lord Baden-Powell, took some Boy Scouts out on a camping trip "totally unprepared".

"Tatty" Mullett, 24, was in charge of a group of Scouts from the Royal 116th Bearwood Mounted Hussars Troop when they set out upon a camping weekend in Shropshire. On arrival at the camp site, it was decided that the group should "chow down" with a pre-packed picnic that the Scoutmaster had prepared.

It was only then that the hungry little blighters discovered that their leader had broken the first rule of Scouting - Be Prepared - and had left the grub at home.

When Police raided Mullett's home in Birmingham, they found a scene of "absolute devastation", every room being in a state of "complete unpreparedness".

Detective Chief Superintendent Ben Clarinet of West Midlands Police, told reporters:

"The place was in total disarray. There were neckchiefs and toggles everywhere."

Mr Mullett, who is also a spare-time computer geek, was charged under Section 4a of the Anti-forgetfulness Act, and was placed in the custody of his mum.

Alan Notready, of the Crown Prosecution Service, said:

"He should be prepared to go away for a long time."
