City of London. The wide open spaces.

I just looked out of the window here in my office in the City of London. I'm quite lucky as I have a view of part of the magnificent St. Paul's cathedral.

The City of London has it's own police force. They have jurisdiction over the square mile which is known for banks and insurance companies, but not so much for wide open spaces.

So imagine my surprise when a City of London police 4WD just rolled down the street. What on earth do the need a 4WD for? They already have horses and bikes and the police can get around the square mile on foot pretty quickly too (it really is only a square mile). But a 4WD? To paraphrase Shrek: perhaps they are compensating for something
