A drugs raid went a little wrong for some policemen in Greater Manchester. They had it all planned, they would surprise the gang at 6.30 in the morning. Armed with sledgehammers a dozen policeman smashed the window of the terrace house and piled through to catch the criminals. Unfortunately all they found was school dinner lady, Kathleen Oldham
who was sitting in her dressing down drinking a cup of tea. The embarrassed police said “sorry, love, wrong house” and left. Miss Oldham was later given a bouquet of flowers and workmen were sent to repair her front window.
