WATCH: Obscene Lout Walks Into Lamppost

Thursday 29th November 2012

A yob was so caught up with swearing at a CCTV camera that he walked straight into a lamppost!

The police released the CCTV footage of the hilarious incident as the teen, with a hoodie pulled over his face, makes a fool of himself.

Local neighbourhood police Sergeant Rob Simpson, said: “I guess you could call it swift divine intervention! Camera operators are here with the sole aim of keeping our communities safe and monitoring suspicious behaviour – they don’t deserve abuse.

“We have 177 CCTV cameras across the borough of Dudley; many, like this one, are in High Streets, but others cover residential areas, parks, subways and car-parks.

“They are all overt, none are hidden, but at the same time they are not intrusive – the vast, vast majority of people go about their daily business oblivious of the cameras. It’s only people who are concerned about their behaviour or up to no good that seem to be conscious of them.”
