Police officer fires shot as thieves make off with radar

Security guard out of bounds

While taking photos from the pedestrian walkway between Swire House and World Wide House recently, a security guard prodded me and motioned me to move. I was neither causing an obstruction - it is a wide walkway and I had only been there a few minutes - nor was I using a tripod (which requires special clearance).

The snail slides along on its single muscular foot at a top speed of 20 metres an hour.
