    Default Police Station B


    Police Station
    Visited with Special K in January 2014.


    This is the second police station that I've visited, this one closed in late 2013. It seems like I missed out on seeing even more bits and pieces by a week or two. Saying that, there were still a few odds and sods laying around which you'll see below.
    We entered the building, quickly made our way around in to the cells and heard an alarm, we ran out across the road to the nearest shop and waited for a few minutes. There was no sign of any police, so we assumed we were safe and headed back over. We got back in, back to the cells and the alarm started again, again we rushed out and waited to see if anyone came. It was then that we realised it was an alarm on a car, parked behind the police station that had coincidentally gone off both times as we entered the cells.
    Since we were pressed for time, we headed back in one last time, realising that we weren't likely to have any company, and rushed around trying to photograph what we saw.
    It was strange exploring this place, as I had been here twice before, once only a couple of months prior at an open day, allowing the public to see behind the scenes before it closed it's doors for the last time. The first time to give a witness statement a couple of years earlier.
    We had to be careful as the panic strips along the walls were still live and the locks had not yet been removed from the cell doors like the last police station we'd been to.
    This has supposedly been broken in to and vandalised inside and some people were actually caught inside shortly after we visited and charged with criminal damage, though I'm not sure how true this is.

    Apologies for the photos, it was dark and a rushed visit.







    ...but there's no one here to give them to?










    Cell clothes left behind, presumably what you were given if they seized your clothes for evidence?








    The room where they screen you for traces of Smart water.


    Sergeant didn't leave it very tidy for us.

    Unfortunately there was no cassette player to play this back on
