Derbyshire's finest have been entertaining netizens recently with a world-class demonstration of why vans and floodwater don't mix:

According to internal police sources, the aquaplod in question were "Special" constables, aka "Play Cops", and are "now all in deep water" as a result of their mishap. As the Blogger in Blue puts it: "Classic stuff and proof, my informant tells me, that lack of intelligence is no bar to joining Derbyshire Police." ®
