Riot Training Experience Launched


Suddenly, a day's paintballing seems a little tame for a stag do.

Because website Wish can now give you and your friends the opportunity to take part in a 'riot experience' away day.

Yes, that's right, you can sign up for a full day's activities where you will learn the basics of riot management, before the group is split into two and pitched into a full scale battle to test out your new skills. The course is run by ex-military and police professionals used to dealing with rioting hordes in places such as Bosnia & Northern Ireland, so we doubt there'll be any messing about. In addition, we would strongly advise those 'playing' the police not to exert too much rough justice - the two sides swap places halfway through so scores can easily be settled if individuals are a little too 'baton-happy'.

Residents in Droitwich, Worcestershire, have apparently already complained to their local MP about the activity, but at least if the 2011 riots are repeated in their leafy county, they should be pretty handy at knowing what to do.
