The police gets a lot of criticism for the way they do their jobs. Sometimes they’re too aggressive, sometimes the exact opposite. There are times, however, when they get it just right. Two policemen from Leicestershire found the perfect, and most British way to deal with a hungry man they encountered on a road.
1. When these two Leicestershire policemen encountered this hungry man, they knew just what to do.
Male found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK. He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟 pic.twitter.com/4VQMFwsTLN

2. The people are happy to see the police treats the man in such a nice way, whatever his status may be.
Smiling, eating, and being human! This is exactly what needs to be shown. Here illegally or not, we’re all human beings, and should be treated as such. This is a lovely picture ☺ well done guys! 😎

3. It warms Rebecca’s British heart.
I rarely feel pride for my country nowadays but you guys just made me so damn proud! This is what British values mean; compassion, kindness and solid common sense. If you had a kettle, I reckon you’d have put it on!

4. He just might.
Good work. He’s probably decided to try another country with better food.

6. And fortunately there are some people with some ‘helpful’ tips, too.
I’m so glad you mentioned that. Until you commented I bet the Police had no idea what to do with him.
