A woman has been given a police warning—for joking on Facebook that she would put out the Olympic torch with a water pistol.
Helen Perry posted that she had got her kids’ water guns at the ready to dampen it as it came through Bridlington.

“I got quite a telling off and I remember him mentioning something about terrorism.”
