In England, a member of Parliament has asked the Northumbria police why an officer stopped a group of children from playing in a local wooded area. The children were building a den out of branches, but an officer ordered them to tear it down and move on. It was reportedly the second time in a couple of weeks that police had forced children to stop playing in the woods. A police spokesman said the department had received a complaint about the children. The officer determined that they had committed no offense, said the spokesman, but warned them that someone had complained about them and "advice was given" to them.
