Silly Tuesday (legal edition)

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 25 October 2011 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

The bear went free, released from police bail after a thorough investigation. Bear was collected by waiting friends and quickly taken away from the prying eyes of the world's press.
The complainant refused to tell her story, and Northumbria Police, having decided on "no further action" now turned their attention to other matters.

Happy Silly Tuesday!
