Police officer who spent hours attending sudden death of a baby left angry note on car

The unnamed officer took to Twitter on Monday after discovering the handwritten note on their windscreen which said they had a “£100 fine for shopping on duty”. They had popped into Tesco to pick up a sandwich having spent seven hours attending the death of a baby.

The police officer, whose Twitter handle is @NorthWestCop, posted: “Just left Tesco.

“Handwritten note on the windscreen of my patrol car. ‘£100 fine for shopping on duty’.

“If only I could tell the person who wrote it that I have just spent the last seven hours at the sudden death of a baby.

“I’d bought a sandwich. We’re not robots. #BeKind #WoundUp.”

The post prompted an outpouring of support on social media with people thanking the police officer for the work they do.

One Twitter user commented: “We, the general public, should always let emergency services ahead in the queue.

“Thank you to you and your colleagues for what you do to keep us all safe.”

Another replied: “Maybe the person who wrote this will see this on Twitter and feel suitably ashamed.

“I always let emergency services personnel go before me in a queue.

“My friends son is a paramedic and has done a full shift on half a sandwich before, I would pass out of that was me.”

A fifth wrote: “Sorry you had to deal with that on top of a difficult shift.”

One more fumed: “That’s disgusting! I’m so sorry somebody felt the need to do that. The majority of us think you’re amazing for doing the job you do.”
