The Crown Prosecution Service got a little confused and asked for a statement from PC Peach. Who is a police dog.

Do note that this was not actually filed. It is a little bit of ribbing at a silly mistake: something which could indeed happen to anyone and the ribbing that follows would indeed happen to anyone.
At which point:
The CPS, however, failed to see the funny side. Officials are believed to have complained to police that their mistake has been turned into a very public joke.
Kill them. Kill them with fire, raze the building, plough the land with salt and sell the population into bondage.
It was PG Wodehouse, I am convinced, who did much to stay the advance of Mosely and fascism in general in Britain pre-WWII. The whole joke of Roddy Spode and his black footy bags made us (well, OK, them in the past) laugh at the pretensions of this utterly ‘orrible oick. That perfect perisher never before seen in one’s puff.
Those who would have power over us, the bureaucracy, the politicians, the civil servants, don’t care either way if we hate them or love them, as long as we do as we’re told. But for us to be contemtuous of them, to laugh at them, would be and is unbearable. Thus the CPS complaint.
And thus why they must all burn.
