Thread tidied up

Let's keep it on topic, no more remarks about crooked police or bent politicians.

I believe Baldscot has received the advise he needs and we'll give him the chance to update us after his visit to the station today.

If anyone has any grievances about their posts being edited do drop me a PM to discuss, in the meantime read the forum rules and play nicely or this thread will be locked.

Good news - just back from police station and they have returned all the items. Just a warning - they had the folding saws described as a 7 1/2 inch lock blade so worth bearing in mind if you use one of these.

Thanks again to everyone who posted, especially to those offering advice & support. It was intresting to read the different views and the varied ways in which people (mis)interpret the law.

Guid stuff, what did they say?
I phoned 1st, was told i could get them back. Went to station but only dealt with the civvy's on reception. Believe it or not i was handed everything back in a see-through evidence bag. Would have loved to see the look on the 2 old dears sat behind if i hadn't taken my works bag in with me!

Good news ,what was the warning all about then ?


Sorry, they didn't warn me - i was just warning others that the laplander was classed as a locking blade (which,technically, i suppose it is - i just never thought of it as such)
I see ,now i would not have thought a folding saw comes under the same law ,you live a learn
