Let us hope the story makes page 1 on newspapers around the world, although I fear it will take more than international embarrassment and ridicule to affect the UK's current problems

'The three men said they felt they had been treated like slaves, just handcuffed and shoved into the back of a police vehicle.'

Being as they're from Zanzibar, they should know about such?

That is a very strange article. ATM skimming, missing passports, the whole thing is a string of non-sequiturs. And this gem -

'"He managed through knowing police procedure to get the passport found," she said.'?????

But, given the inevitable cooling in relations, the feline quantities are likely to remain a mystery.
