Questioned by the Police near Crawley as a potential terrorist!
I was working about 3 miles from Gatwick Airport, laying mole traps on a road-verge that lay underneath the main flight path. All of a sudden I was aware of two uniformed Police Officers standing only a few metres from me. They had noticed my activities from an unmarked patrol car and were initially suspicious in case I was involved in untoward activities. They explained that they made frequent visits along the road checking for potential terrorism, and I had caught their attention with my bag of metal traps, probes and digging tools. Coincidentally I met them again two weeks later on a farm in Crowhurst, near Lingfield.
