How Policing Has Changed (4)

The historical crime fiction book ‘Keep Right On’ is set in 1976 when Birmingham City F.C. and Aston Villa F.C. played in the same Division. The story focuses on two organised football gangs affiliated to these clubs, and their fight for supremacy, but is also set against the backcloth of the rise of the political right. For those who like to research history google ‘Robert Relf’ and see what you come up with. The riots which took place outside Winson Green Prison are covered in the story-line when once again the police found themselves fighting to maintain the ‘thin blue line’ sometimes with no more than borrowed dustbin lids for protection.
