This photo was discovered in the Echo archive among an envelope of photos from 1999 and simply has a police officer holding up a football.
What he is doing with the ball and why the photo was taken is a complete mystery to us.
Maybe you know who this officer is and why he is holding a football? Maybe you are the officer in question?
