The daffodil police:

Two officers swooped at the weekend, having spied for 20 minutes on three ‘suspects’ – sisters Sienna, four, and India, ten, and their stepsister Olivia, six. The girls had been on a Sunday walk in the park with their parents when they stopped to pick the flowers, but they were spotted by a passing councillor, a member of whose family called the police.

Jane Errington and her daughter Olivia, six. The family was approached by two police officers in a park in Poole, Dorset, after a councillor called them to report the children picking the daffodils
