And it was all yellow

Bright yellow police signs appealing for witnesses to serious offences are no longer such a feature of grim city streets - in London at least. For in an attempt to reduce 'fear of crime', the Metropolitan Police has effectively banned the use of the distinctive signs in all but exceptional circumstances.

However, this rule does not apply to that holy object, the motor car. Theft from parked vehicles is a matter which Commander Mark Bowden takes very, very seriously indeed, splattering these lurid signs all over central Walthamstow.
