Do you think this is a good recovery or a bad recovery of an MOB?

Chris
Bad one. The "casualty" should have had a bloody good whack with an oar first to cool them off a bit

Judging by the size of her, she wants to think herself fkn lucky that Greenpeace weren't called, they'd have towed her out into the estuary

I'm with Dave, I thought they were taking her out to open water, after clearing her blowhole of course.

I'm a bit surprised to see the RNLI "assisting" with an arrest

If the rozzers wanted her, surely they should have got on with it?

I'm not donating to the RNLI so they can nick folk, porky or otherwise

Its not clear to me that she was arrested, but I think it will be quite normal for anyone the RNLI pulls out the water alive after jumping off a bridge to be placed in the care of the police unless they need immediate medical attention. But the same thing did cross my mind when I first watched it - the police boat was already there, well staffed and presumably with experienced crew on board... why were the RNLI required at all?

Could be that the 999 call went in, both the polis & RNLI were scrambled, polis got there first, just before the cavalry & let the RNLI do what they do best. Horses for courses, if you want someone pulled out of the water, leave it to the RNLI, if you need an innocent man shot in an underground station leave it to the B.I.B.
