Cop Shop

A police force has set up an online gift shop offering baby clothes with slogans such as "Out at last" and "I've been inside for nine months".

Kent Police offers other gifts branded with the force's logo such as high visibility jackets in children's sizes, hip flasks, police-style ties, pens, T-shirts and packs of golf balls.

The £10,000 venture has not gone down well with some Kent residents, whose force ranked just below halfway in a recent performance table.

Steve Morley, who lives on a crime-troubled estate in Ramsgate, said: "We never seem to see a proper copper round our way."
