Getting wierder

Many Crossrail engineers have been arrested after being mistaken for protestors attempting to disrupt transport and cause lengthy delays in London.

Reminds me of a student prank in Oxford in the 70s. Bunch of students tipped of police that some of their peers had taken rag week prank too far and were posing as council workers digging up a road.

Edit: I was not there at the time being a little too young but it was from a friend of mine (and academy a load brighter) who was at St Peter's at the time.
