Man Ticketed for Speeding by the Same Cop in Britain and New Zealand

A man emigrated from London to New Zealand. Shortly after arriving, he was ticked for speeding. He recognized the police officer as Constable Andy Flitton, who had ticketed him for speeding in London two years before. Flitton, too, had just immigrated to New Zealand:

"He asked if I had worked in London," Constable Flitton said. "I said, 'yes'.

"He asked if I used to operate the laser gun on the A5 in north London. I said, 'yes'.

"And he said, 'I thought it was you. You gave me my last speeding ticket there two years ago'.

"The minute he said it, I remembered the whole thing," Constable Flitton told the New Zealand Herald.

"We both just had a laugh."

The man told Constable Flitton he had been in New Zealand for less than two weeks and was still looking for a place to live.
