I must shake my head

In England (where else?), the police prevent a rescue and then don't bother to do anything themselves. All in the name of "Health and Safety".

Davey Davis, 38, a friend of the family, said: “It was the most harrowing thing I have ever witnessed. Michelle was at the bedroom window yelling, ‘Please save my kids’ and we wanted to help but the police were pushing us back and not allowing us near. We were willing to risk our lives to save those kiddies but the police wouldn’t let us.

“Tempers were running very high, particularly with the women who were there, but the police were just saying we have to wait for the fire brigade because of health and safety.

A woman is leaning out a window screaming and the police won't even let bystanders put up a ladder?
