Decoy used in London
Pea men are not only a problem in Benidorm as I read in a national UK paper yesterday. London is also suffering from these organised East European criminal networks operating in the capital. The gangs are very difficult to arrest as they scatter within seconds, passing any incriminating evidence to other members of the gang. They also have look outs which stand on the street corners watching out for any sign of the police.

However, the Metropolitan police in London seem to have cracked it .... perhaps they can pass on a few tips to the Policia Local here in Benidorm!

Westminster Bridge in London is plagued by these organised crime gangs fleecing tourists in much the same way as here in Benidorm - in fact, any area with a high concentration of holiday makers is rich pickings for them. The police borrowed a red double decker bus with 30 officers on board and pulled up alongside the gangs and took them completely by suprise - arresting more than 25 Romanians. The well placed look outs normally whistle when they spot any police officers approaching but were obviously not expecting them to be on board a London double decker bus.

I wonder whether our local police would consider such a move ... they could all hop on a number 10 bus that regularly goes up and down the Avd Mediterraneo and catch the gangs unaware. Perhaps I´ll drop a line to the police chief in an effort to get rid of these dregs of society and make Benidorm a safer environment for the thousands of tourists that chose the resort for their well earned holiday.
