Chief Constable Michael Todd, death in the hills and death on the road .. a useful and fascinating analysis

Pic from Freewheeler at Crap Waltham Forest who has a fascinating take on the career of top Met shagger Chief Constable Michael Todd in a lengthy , detailed and well informed rant (The petrolhead's copper) about how his policies have resulted in greater danger on the roads to children and other road users in London and Manchester.

He concludes .....

"Having for years blocked the introduction of speed cameras in Manchester and massively reduced traffic policing, how did Mike Todd choose to get around the city? You guessed – a 4X4. His dangerous and prejudiced style of policing put the most vulnerable – children, cyclists and pedestrians – at risk, but he was not prepared to share those risks himself. Instead he preferred the protection offered by a Range Rover."

It was of course a Range Rover that was left at Lanberis that he was said to have driven from Manchester and left there before he climbed Snowdon in the worst storm for 10 years.

Nobody saw him leave it there, and non-one has been identified as having found him and his half (?) empty gin bottle and his jacket ......
