Neigh-bourhood watch

Riding hats off to a sergeant in the Metropolitan Police, who is quoted in the Evening Standard after an operation to target vagrants in London. Commenting on the use of mounted cops, he says: 'Officers on horses mean increased visibility. They have a different viewpoint and can spot things we don't.'

My old friend Hoffy suggests that giraffes might provide an even better vantage point in the fight against crime.

But animals cost money. In these times of austerity, surely a few step ladders from B&Q would be a more appropriate investment?
