    Well they wouldn't let me jump my Vectra as it was dead, was told I could take it across the road to do it, so I explained how the f*** do I move a dead car the other side of the road on my own lol, turning 19 inch wheels with no power steering, had to wait 2 hours in the freezing cold with no heat for recovery where the nice chap jumped it with a booster pack, funnily enough I drove out the petrol station with it still in one piece lol

    It's not a major issue i would of thought dan as i attended a 'Police Car' on Fire in a petrol station and the Petrol Station was still standing when we put it out and left the scene.
