The Case Of The Wrong Trousers

Just read a funny article titled police keen to solve case of the wrong trousers on The Scotsman.

A Scottish police force has sent back thousands of new trousers to the manufacturer because they looked like 1970s-style flares.

Tayside Police officers rejected the new trousers as they looked too much like bell bottoms.

Senior management immediately stepped in to prevent officers going on the beat wearing the 'faulty' trousers and contacted the manufacturers to ensure the problem is solved.

One Western Division officer said: "For a uniform that's supposed to bring us into the 21st century, the trousers are more 1970s. Maybe some of the older boys would have liked them as it would have reminded them of their formative years on the beat. But to be honest we would have looked like something out of The Sweeney or Dixon of Dock Green."
