An enterprising member of Her Majesty's Constabulary has set up in business with a mobile refreshment stand.
Featuring jumbo hot dogs, the business is expected to flourish.
"I import my dogs from Germany" says Mick Davies(nicknamed "Careless" by his colleagues in a spoof on "Dangerous Davis - the Last Detective" played by actor Peter Davidson) "and they have to be aged for 2 to 3 years before I cook 'em".
Speaking from his holding cell, Davies explains that he only keeps one or two dogs in the stand at a time. "What with the heat in there, I wouldn't last long if I tried to cook more than a couple".
"Supplies have dried up and I will be closing the stand until I can get my hands on more dogs".
Davies expects to be back in business in about 3 years (with time off for good behaviour).
