Police swoop on flower-picking children
18 March 2011
Police swooped last weekend as two tiny children were spotted committing an outrage against flowers in a public park.
Sienna Marengo, four, and her sister Olivia, six, were spotted picking daffodils in Whitecliff Park, Poole, last Sunday. No doubt fearing that the flower-picking could escalate into something far nastier, a member of the public called the police, who swiftly arrived in a squad car. The children were observed for twenty minutes before the police finally stepped in.

Their parents - who later complained about the "heavy handed
" reaction - were told that they could face charges of criminal damage. They admitted that flowers had indeed been picked, and said "in the future we will leave them there
" (the daffodils, presumably, not the children).
Dorset police said "we were told a significant amount of daffodils were being pulled out and thrown around
". Stand by for more sensational revelations.
