Möwenschiss und Ankerdiebe

Vom Abenteuer, ein Insel-Bobby zu sein

Etwa fünfzig Kilometer vom südwestlichsten Zipfel von Cornwall entfernt liegen die Scilly-Inseln. Wunderschöne Gärten, Sonnenuntergänge unter Palmen, ein weiter Blick aufs Meer: Die Inselgruppe mitten im Atlantik ist ein wahres Idyll. Und Sergeant Colin Taylor der Mann, der entschlossen einschreitet, wenn die Luft brennt – egal, ob ein Streit zwischen angeheiterten Küchenchefs oder erhitzten Pub-Besuchern entflammt oder jemand einen wuchtigen Anker wegzuschleppen versucht. Auch bei den durchschnittlich drei gestohlenen Fahrrädern im Jahr bleibt der lustige Polizist entspannt, denn: „Wirklich weit kommt man mit dem Diebesgut ja sowieso nicht.“ Mit hinreißendem britischem Witz und Charme schreibt der Scilly Sergeant über seine Abenteuer als Insel-Bobby.
