Apparently two members of the police force were out on the
Berwickshire moors recently with a radar gun, happily idling their lives
away apprehending alleged speeding motorists when their equipment
suddenly locked-up with an unanticipated digital readout of 300 miles
Seconds later a low flying Harrier jump jet hurtled over their heads.
The police lodged a complaint with the RAF over the damage to their
radar gun. The RAF pointed out that the damage may have been much more
severe as the Harrier's target-seeker had locked on to the 'enemy' radar
and triggered an automatic retaliatory air-to-surface missile attack.
