The Clash And Led Zep Bring Police!

A man from Hartlepool was taken off a flight bound for London at the end of last month and questioned under the Terrorism Act thanks to his taste in music.

Harraj Mann played his own music over the taxi’s stereo on the way to the airport but the driver didn’t approve.

He played Procol Harum, Led Zep’s Immigrant Song” and “London Calling” by the Clash, and this apparently made the driver suspicious, so much so that he called the police.

The Durham Police found that Mann wasn’t a security risk too late, as the plane had left by the time this decision had been made.
