Trouble in Dr. Who land

The most bizarre story of the weekend has to be this one in Saturday's Western Mail, where South Wales Police are objecting to Cardiff council plans to bring a major Doctor Who tourist attraction to the capital.

The paper says that the exhibition is expected to attract 250,000 visitors a year, generate revenue of up to £6m annually for BBC Worldwide and pump £65m into the city’s economy. But South Wales Police say the exhibition will increase policing pressures, and they have warned they will object to the plans unless the council funds a new Police Community Support Officer.

Planning Officers have rejected the demand on the grounds that the venue will be employing its own security.

It is fortunate in some ways that it is not a Torchwood exhibition. The cost of cleaning up Cardiff Bay after the team blew it up in the last series must have been huge. That really would be a policing nightmare.

If Cardiff doesn't want it, we'll have it in Swansea. Like Premier league Football...

"....But South Wales Police say the exhibition will increase policing pressures, and they have warned they will object to the plans unless the council funds a new Police Community Support Officer...."

That sounds like blackmail to me!
 
It is great to think that one additional PCSO will be able to deal with all the extra pressure from this proposed development. It brings a whole new meaning to the term 'Robocop!'
 
Sounds like something was done about the South Wales Police Farce!

Cardiff Police are making themselves look stupid and silly and just plain silly. cw
