UK riot police have today used a controversial new weapon on the G20 protestors.

The 'Soap'n'water' cannon has been adapted from the commonly used water cannon, and is part of the police strategy to target individual groups with appropriate deterrents.

Commenting on this new development a spokesman said, "This weapon has many advantages, you do not even have to use any great pressure to propel the soapy water, all we do is point the cannon in the air and let the soapy water rain down on the troublesome group. For this particular group of people their aversion to soap is such that this weapon is more effective than rubber bullets or a baton charge, and disperses them immediately."

Police say that they will continue this type of targeted strategy in next week's Countryside Alliance protests by filling their water cannons with Jacobs Creek red wine.
