I wish to warn the car-driving senior citizens of the city that there is a character driving a huge motor cycle, more suitable for the Tourist Trophy in the Isle of Man races than in a large town and masquerading as an off-duty officer of the law.

He is no more a police officer than Nicholas Hoogstraten.

Any motorist encountering this fellow, who speaks with a Scottish accent, should note his number plate and report the matter to the police.
