Someone threw eggs and wet paper napkins at Leicestershire Police car during Christmas light switch-on

Officers have expressed their despair after eggs were thrown at a police car at a Christmas light switch-on. Eggs and wet paper napkins were thrown at the cars at the Market Bosworth Christmas light switch-on on December 1. The officer whose car was egged posted about the incident on the force’s Facebook page sarcastically praising those who threw the objects.

In the post, the officer said: “The Christmas countdown has truly begun. “What better way to celebrate than to clean off eggs and wet paper napkins from the truck.” In the post, the officer said that the situation had been made worse by the fact that they had been volunteering at the event.

The officer added: “It makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that you’ve left your family at home to enjoy their Sunday roast, and get snuggly next to a roaring fire and you’ve VOLUNTEERED to show some presence at the Market Bosworth Christmas lights switch on. “And then you’re faced with this.” The officers criticised those who threw the items, particularly in the wake of the London Bridge terror attack on Friday, in which two people died.
