Skegness policeman abused in supermarket… for buying his dinner

Inexplicable.

A Skegness police officer has said he was verbally abused in a supermarket by a member of the public for buying his dinner.

PC Dan Healey was in uniform when he was abused and took to social media on Friday, January 5 to share the incident.

He said: “Police officers are human too and also need food to survive.

“I’d help you in a heartbeat if you needed us not because of my job but because I’m a human who cares.”

His post on Twitter saw dozens of people jump to his defence.
