Joking aside Pete is spot on.
There is a very good download on the Ofcom site about scanners.
Basically you can only listen to that which you are licenced to.
You can also listen to, Ham bands and broadcast radio.
Again using is a second offence, you can have your collor felt just having it in your pocket with the wrong stuff stored!
Sorry to hear about the Rib, glad it has been found though.
