The fourth emergency service

Thought we had a police car out the back just now. Turns out it was just one of those robin reliants with orange go-faster stripes, a mobile number and a flashing orange light.

Orange lights are great. There's pretty strict rules on blue and green lights, but for some reason anyone's allowed to show one. And then the humblest plumber or washing machine repair man with a mobile and an irregular sleep pattern can call themselves an emergency service. And lie in bed waiting for that 3am crisis which will allow them to leap out of bed, strap on that emergency light and save the day.
