Saw the local BBC news at lunchtime where they interviewed a number of guys near the scene who knew him. Apparently he was a 78 year old homeless Hungarian guy. Very sad. RIP
Indeed they are supposed to.
They put the chopper up for the woman who was eating an apple on the motorway. And to chase down "Wally". Wouldn't this scenario have been better suited to using the chopper?
Very sad indeed.

I don't care what you say to me. The whole first season at The Amex, I went to all Gus Poyet's pre match press conferences. I asked the great man what I wanted , when I wanted. It's something money can't buy.
The police chopper now based miles away in Surrey and would take around 20 minutes at best to get up and running and overhead? Bear Rd to St James Street took around 2 mins at that time of night and at speed by which time the damage was done and it was all over and car lost, no point in even calling the helicopter.
