Dopey Derbyshire Dunces

Section:

Derbyshire Police yet again show themselves inept at the art of public relations in tweeting about trying to locate a man who kissed a woman on the cheek to thank her for helping him with his lorry

The “busybodies” of Derbyshire Police will forever be remembered as the dunces of the 2020 coronavirus lockdown.

 

In a post shared on their own website and online via social media also on Friday, the plainly inept manager of communications for this force shared an appeal. Its wording was beyond weak and its content laughable. The text read:

 

We are appealing for help to identify a man who kissed a woman on the cheek to thank her for helping when his lorry became stuck under a low bridge.

 

The incident occurred between 12pm and 4pm on Tuesday, 28 April, in Dale Road, Matlock.

 

The heavy goods vehicle had become stuck and the woman, who is in her 70s, helped the men to ensure the lorry did not hit the bridge.

 

After the lorry became unstuck one of the men in the lorry left the vehicle, thanked the woman and kissed her on the cheek.

 

Officers want to speak to anyone who was in the area at time and may be able to help our enquiries into the incident – of particular interest are any drivers who were in the area at the time and may have captured the lorry on dashcam.

 

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Derbyshire police.

 

Slammed previously by amongst others Lord Sumption for their “hysteria” during lockdown, Derbyshire Police subsequently were inundated by Twitter users astounded that this ‘matter’ was being shared publicly.

 

In response, the force’s Twitter manager announced: “This would be classed as a sexual assault as the woman did not want the man to kiss her on the cheek… We’d just like to identify and speak to the man we’ve described at this moment in time.”

 

Without explaining how a kiss could have lasted from 12pm to 4pm and whether they’d caught the lorry driver who likes to thank with a kiss, Derbyshire Police subsequently deleted their original tweet about the matter. They did not, however, manage to delete the thousands of outraged and mocking responses.

The ‘kiss’ occurred within a window of a four-hour time period on Dale Road, Matlock, Derbyshire in the vicinity of this bridge allegedly.

In response to mockery and outrage from Twitter users, the force used their own account to attempt to justify their actions. Their strategy was subsequently met with further derision.

  1. Well she looks like she is quite enjoying it to me. This is mad, it looks like
    the sort of thing you see on April Fools Day! Madness!!

  2. I am an old lady and I would not object to a kiss on the cheek from a young buck lorry driver. Sounds lovely. Something not quite right with the complainant.

  3. The old hag in question should have been grateful someone even wanted to go near her!!!!!!!!! Likely infected with disease herself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shame the Sheila!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Put her in the stocks!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Plainly this police force need their budget cutting. They are certainly wasting what they have been so generously been given.
