Have they got any more going spare? Looks like they've got more to worry about than the tourists.

TWO people have been charged over a bloody brawl in rural Western Australia involving up to 100 members of two feuding families armed with clubs, fence posts and swords.

That was the Northam brawl. Nasty business - and totally uncharacteristic of Northam, which is a lovely little country town.

You do get some right idiots around the place these days.

Anyway, is one real policeman sitting in uniform in the crowd going to do anything other than blend in with all the other people in fancy dress police uniforms drinking beer!!?!

Madness

Was'nt knocking the Poms , just thought it was a funny story, As someone said they will probably think his just another Pom cricket fan in fancy dress not a real cop, if he tries to arrest someone they will probably think its a joke.
