    Policemen

    Caught part of 'The Most Powerful Eyes in West Yorkshire' yesterday. Noted that it included two policemen and not our usual pair. Both wore helmets which was unusual. Only one seemed to get listed in the cast list, a Brian Baines. A bit of research then showed up two different from normal...
