Pensioner issued with caution for picking wild berries.

Surely there has to be more to this than has been reported.

Following a row with the caretaker, Mr Blayney, his wife and two friends left the scene. But the caretaker reported Mr Blayney to the police, who tracked him down using CCTV images of his car.


Maybe the row was a little more heated than the article suggests. If not the response does seem somewhat heavy handed.

Eddy the only thing I see is that he was on private property and maybe that is where the problem comes from, besides that I am not sure either unless it was quite a fight.
