A SELF-RIGHTEOUS, snooping arsehole is becoming increasingly annoyed at not having enough opportunities to call the police.
Norman Steele, 62, has been infuriated by photographs in the papers and online of overcrowded parks, stories of barbecues and even 11-a-side football matches.
However upon visiting his local park armed with binoculars he was disappointed to find the vast majority of people observing two metre distances, exercising appropriately and showing consideration for others.
Steele said: “Just my luck to go on the one afternoon when people behaved themselves. Word probably got round that I was coming down to keep an eye on them. But I’ve got their card marked. I know what they’re really up to.”
Steele returned to the same park six times in one day but found frustratingly little to put in his black notebook.
PC Nikki Hollis said: “Thankfully, the vast majority of people are following government guidelines.
“Unfortunately, we did have to have a word with Mr Steele, following complaints that he spent several hours outdoors and was breaching social distancing as he accused other park users of just pretending to exercise.
“He proceeded to remonstrate violently, breathing on us and spraying sweat everywhere, at which point we were forced to taser him.”
