    Default We need to know...

    ...what happened at one of the schools in the Maidenhead area yesterday. The place was swarming with police, pulling over white vans all over the place. Yet the schools won't say what happened (parents are just being told to make sure they know where their kids are all the time), and there's nothing in the local papers or the web.

    If something dodgy happened we should be told so we can be careful. Forewarned is forearmed, or whatever the saying is.

    Thanks for that. Not sure how that helps exactly. I said Maidenhead, not Farnham Common. Duh!

    & I don't think "Farnham Common Junior School has appointed its new headteacher" would have warranted calling the fuzz out in force, unless they'd appointed Osama Bin Laden or somebody.

    Theres a lot of things that dont get reported in the news.
    Last week, the whole of Oxford Street was closed whilst the police defused a bomb.

    Shouldn't be told so that mass panic is averted, which would otherwise make the security services job impossible to do.

    possibly

    I recall once on the M6 I got stuck in a delay. It was reported once on the traffic news... then nothing. Took a couple of hours to get through.
