  1. A police helicopter went on a 40-mile round trip after reports of a cry for help – only to discover it was a goat and her kid.   A member of the public dialled 999, saying they heard screams for help inside Cheddar Gorge, Somerset.   The National Police Air Service helicopter, which is fitted with video-imaging equipment, was scrambled to the popular tourist attraction from its base at Filton near Bristol, 20 miles away.   But, within minutes of arriving over the scene on Wednesday, the crew realised the sounds were coming from a goat and her offspring.   The National Police Air Service, tweeted from its NPAS Filton account: “1205 Cheddar Gorge reports of cries for help. We located a goat and her baby believed responsible for the calling. We’re not kidding!”   An Avon and Somerset Police spokeswoman said: “We had a call on March 4 at 11.08am. The caller reported hearing cries from the cliffs. Any concern for welfare is taken very seriously, particularly in areas where walkers can fall and injure themselves.   “Our search and rescue team were in the area and checked the cliffs using video and thermal imaging.

    Why the met.

    I am down to begin training with the met in the summer, I was due to start last year but had it delayed to finish my degree. Is anyone else starting in the June to August period ? My main question is, I have the option to transfer my application over to Avon and Somerset and I wanted to know, is the met a better force for things such as career progression, a diversity of roles and an overall better force to work for? Would love some feedback on this from anyone, love to here from people already working in the met. lastly, I have seen people asking about which forces are recruiting and A&S are taking on now and want to recruit 120 new PC's.
  3. All, I am trying to transfer between TVP and Avon and Somerset, but am experiencing difficulties. A&S are refusing to progress my application until TVP releases my entire HR file - which TVP has refused to do. Has anyone here who's transferred previously experienced a similar process, and could they let me know the outcome, by PM if preferable. TIA, Adam
