I remember that case. I see the rozzers nicked four of them - must have been a fracas (aka Public Order Offence) on the bank. However, the general attempt seems within Ribnet guidelines as regards keeping Unnecessary Regulatory Interference to a minimum..... not a killcord in sight

"The raft, made from six oil drums and a sheet of wood, contained out-of-date flares, a radio that did not work and carried no life-saving equipment."

And they survived - incredible!!!

Then again poor Nelson had none of those either and he died - then again a lead ball may have helped a litte.........
