Sinister black speedboat action

I often see the police boat going past the flat – occasionally at full speed with lights flashing – but also sometimes I also see a couple of sinister black inflatable boats racing up and down the river.

This morning, one seemed to be playing with the police boat and darting around it much as a kitten plays with a mouse.

Some quite dramatic turns as well.




Looks like lots of fun, although I am sure it is all very serious practising for when they need to do such a thing for real. Bet they enjoy this part of their job though.

  1. Correct, they have no markings. The Police occasionally borrow these training units from the Royal Marines for a bit of a spin. They don’t have funding to buy them yet, and probably never will.
