London discharges expensive water guns Boris Johnson
london - London has after four years put a line under a headache file around three unusable water throwers. They had been purchased and refurbished by order of former mayor Boris Johnson, but were not allowed to be deployed. The cars are now sold as old iron.
London bought the vans in 2014 from the German police to fight rioters, reports British media. Later, the then Minister of Interior Theresa May forbade the use of the water throwers in England and Wales. That meant that the Londoners were sitting with three useless anti-riot vehicles, which cost a total of some £ 322,000 (more than EUR 361,000).
