Klass's Castle

Myleene Klass warned by police after scaring off intruders with knife - Telegraphmyleene-klass.jpg

Miss Klass, a model for Marks & Spencer and a former singer with the pop group Hear'Say, was in her kitchen in the early hours of Friday when she saw two teenagers behaving suspiciously in her garden.
The youths approached the kitchen window, before attempting to break into her garden shed, prompting Miss Klass to wave a kitchen knife to scare them away.
Miss Klass, 31, who was alone in her house in Potters Bar, Herts, with her two-year-old daughter, Ava, called the police. When they arrived at her house they informed her that she should not have used a knife to scare off the youths because carrying an "offensive weapon" – even in her own home – was illegal.

And what exactly was she supposed to do?

I presume any answer including the phrase "double tap" would not be acceptable to Plod.

Mind you i would like to double tap her!

Damn, I was about to carve the chicken.

Isn't the offence "carrying an offensive weapon without lawful authority or reasonable excuse"? If that's not a reasonable excuse, I don't know what is. The police were simply wrong in what they said.

You've also got to be carrying the offensive weapon in public.

From what I've read, they can define pretty much anything as an 'offensive weapon', so if she'd waved a bloody frying pan at them she'd probably have been warned.

Effing disgraceful.

Both barrels of the Purdey loaded with buckshot at 20 feet. That would have sorted out the little bastards!
Given something for the birds to pick over in the morning, too.

SHE COULD HAVE FLASHED HER BOOBS AT THEM AND THE KIDS WOULD HAVE MOST LIKELY DROPPED IN THEIR TRACKS, THEN SHE COULD HAVE CALLED THE POLICE TO COME AND GET THEM.
