"Police to ask home secretary to approve use of super soakers across country"

From The Guardian:

Chief constables are shortly to press the home secretary, Theresa May, to authorise the use of super soakers by any police force across England and Wales to deal with an anticipated heat wave.

The Association of Chief Police Officers says that the need to protect people "from ongoing and potentially lethal short term temperature spikes" justifies the introduction of the manually pressurised water guns across Britain for the first time.

The London mayor, Boris Johnson, has already announced a consultation on the introduction of high capacity squirty pistols as a fun way for the Metropolitan Police to cool people down on the streets of London this summer.

It would be a fun way to deal with people protesting about inadequate flood defences.
