30 Jul UPDATE On PCC Complaint. Herts And Essex Observer, 17th May 2011

The original complaint can be seen here.

In a video about a “cannabis factory” raid, PC Rebecca Hawkins had said:

“The plants themselves can be very, very harmful to officers because the spores if they’re ingested they can cause serious illness”.

The newspaper has now published a correction which completely refutes this. Let’s hope that WPC Hawkins is now a little clearer!
