From Pilot Magazine and entered in Bike Magazine: The article was
entitled "In a hurry are we, sir?" (British Police Wit).
Two members of the Lothian and Borders traffic police were out on the
Berwickshire moors with a radar gun recently, happily engaged in
apprehending speeding motorists, when their equipment suddenly
locked-up completely with an unexpected reading of well over 300 mph.
The mystery was explained seconds later as a low flying Harrier hurtled
over their heads. The boys in blue, upset at the damage to their radar
gun, put in a complaint to the RAF, but were somewhat chastened when
the RAF pointed out that the damage might well have been more severe.
The Harrier's target-seeker had locked on to the `enemy' radar and
triggered an automatic retaliatory air-to-surface missile attack.
Luckily(?), the Harrier was operating unarmed.
