‘Many times I heard people say that you’ll have no friends if you’re a policeman. How wrong they were. If you were right with them, they were right with you.’

PC Martyn Johnson is back on the beat with more hilarious and heart-warming stories from the golden age of policing.

With his nose for trouble and a knack for mischief, there’s no such thing as a quiet shift for the friendly Yorkshire bobby – from drunken dogs and runaway horses to high-speed chases after Burglar Bill, there’s always something to keep him busy and always another troublemaker to put to rights.

And with a cuppa-tea stop and a familiar face on every corner of his beat, he’s never far from a friend.
