Johnny, the 17-year-old, is upstairs with a horrific cold. No wonder: he spent the whole of Wednesday out on the street in sub-zero temperatures, being âkettledâ by the Metropolitan Police.
Not just any old cold â but an âhorrificâ cold. Poor love â heâd spent the day out of doors, (as heâd planned), but with the added bonus of the police ensuring which street he was safest on, and providing drinking water and toilets, lest he be inconvenienced, so the implication is that they are responsible for his devastating illnessâ¦..
Elsewhere, teenagers are made of sturdier stuff:
WELLINGTON, New Zealand – Three teenagers survived 50 days adrift in a tiny boat in the South Pacific by drinking rainwater and eating raw fish and a seagull before being rescued by a passing trawler.
