The Motorists Revenge

This was a story from England in!


Apparently two members of the police force were out on the Berwickshire moors 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 per hour!

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.

Is the story true? If you want to know, head over to snopes.
