Thanks for sharing this story! I think this might be Surrey, British Columbia, not Surrey, UK though: there are quite a few references to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police... :)
I think you'll find the article is from Surry, Canada, not from the UK.
Well spotted!I did wonder when they started having Mounties in Guildford... :)
