    OK' I've had a look at the police web site and he wasn't playing a "fruit machine" he was playing a FOBT (fixed odds betting terminal) the rules before a recent TV report where that the bookmakers would not report criminal damage related to FOBTs as that is their highest earner on the high-street! What do you expect? The new Paddy Power 2 full time, 4 part time staff and 4 FOBTs to boot!

    Has anyone else noticed that it seems to be the bookmakers that have the best quality CCTV?

    "Police want to speak with a man who was seen on CCTV cameras" The police are going to keep on wanting "to speak with a man who was seen on CCTV cameras" If the obvious isn't done and the cctv photos available on the police website are not used to update this article. The police are more likely to be thankful, than complain of copyright infringement. One phone call to the police and a keyboard is all it takes!
