Pandas to blame
YOUR report of August 27 highlighted police officers’ fitness for duty.
Having pounded the beat in the 1950s, although I was no bolt of lightening, I covered many miles on beats in and around Wembley, and in the ensuing years my stamina was never in question and neither was weight gain a problem.
