A STARTLED man has told how he found a bullet lying in a York city-centre street.
Tim Stark said he was unloading items into the MOR Music store where he works in Fossgate yesterday morning when he spotted what he believed to be a live .22 bullet gleaming in a puddle.
He said he immediately called police, who came and took it away.
I have no idea what it was doing there, he said.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said the bullet had been put into safe storage, and CID had confirmed it was not thought to be connected with any incident currently under investigation.
He asked anyone with any information about the bullet and how it came to be in Fossgate to phone the force on 0845 60 60 47.
EOD had a Bomb Disposal Robot safely load the charge into an explosion containment vessel where the charge was safely detonated in a controlled explosion.
Your tax dollars at work! I feel safer already!
A LIVE .22 bullet? Oh, the hu . . . well, you know.
A couple of years ago the entire school system in my rural county went into lock-down because a .22 round was found on the HS property.....in the grass. Five elementary schools, the middle school and the high school were locked-down. Sheriff’s Dept, PD from nearby city (pop 7K), State police, SWAT, EMT and HazMat were called to the scene. This was in a RURAL area of WV about a day or two into squirrel season.
It would be totally ironic in a Benny Hill way, they use a block of demolition compound to destroy a .22 long rifle.
Brits should do a flash mob drop of .22’s all over GB.
As many posters have replied to the weird stories out of UK, Great Btitain is DONE.
Such a classic. I love that he’s using Che wearing Mickey Mouse ears for his network bug.
Did the kids keep leaving more cartridges around after that incident to keep getting out of school?
Whew. That was really close. But they got it to safe storage before it found a gun, loaded itself into the gun, and then talked the gun into shooting someone.
Here in America we them as emergency fuses in our trucks!
Wonder how long he'll have to wait for the NHS to treat his PTSD.
If ol’ Timmy was that worried about a single .22 bullet...
...he’d have a heart attack if he peeked under the mats at the loose rounds on the floor of my truck.
Oh, that was their grandparents. The last British generation with brains, guts, and faith.
It’s a sad day when only Top Gear gives me hope for Britain. On the other hand...Clarkson for PM!
In a way he did the right thing. In the UK if he had TOUCHED IT they might have arrested him on charges of attempted murder of the queen. They are so hosed up... argh.
He would have peed all over himself for sure if he had seen me walking out of WalMart yesterday afternoon with 550 of them little missiles. To say nothing of the (GASP!) 100 9mm’s in the same bag.
Speaking of which, I need to run buy Wal-Mart and pick up a few things. I think I’ll get couple more bricks while I’m there. I think they’ve had the bonus 550 packs the last couple times.
Speechless is right. He...called...the...cops?
I feel safe in asserting that Tim Stark sits down to pee.
