No longer would they look human or like little green Martians. Everything from here on out was going to be HR Giger xenomorphic grossouts with multiple mouths and dripping […]

A TERRIFIED pensioner thought one of her children had been killed when she was woken up by a copper banging on her front door at 1:30am. Sarah Lester, 66, who lives alone, even called 999 and asked police to come and help her from the suspicious man knocking on her door, only to be told it was an officer and she needed to open the door. Sarah Lester, 66, pictured with daughter Claire Mason, was terrified that one of her children had been killed when she heard the unexpected knock on her door late at night Sarah, from Borehamwood in Herfordshire said she ‘nearly had a heart attack’ when the police officer knocked on her door at 1.30am Instead of delivering terrible news, the Hertfordshire Constabulary officer told Sarah that she should not have parked her car on the grass curb outside her home hours earlier. Sarah, from Borehamwood in Herfordshire, said: “I froze with terror. I was terrified and thought one of my children had been in an accident and died. “They don’t come around knocking at your door with good news at that time of the night. “Words cannot describe the horror of waking up and hearing the ringing and knocking – he was banging the door and ringing the bell. Ms Lester, who lives alone, said the street lights are turned off in her road after a certain time, and described the experience as “horrendous” and “totally uncessary”. She said the officer did not identify himself and was not wearing a helmet when he woke her up “in a daze”. But her fear quickly turned to anger when the officer told her off for parking her car on the curb hours before. ‘NEARLY HAD A HEART ATTACK’ The self-employed lettings agent parked her black and white Mini Countryman partially on the curb between 8.30pm and 10.15pm that evening before moving it onto her driveway. When asked why he chose to come round in the middle of the night, Sarah claimed the copper said “I have chosen to deal with it this way.” Her relief quickly turned to anger, saying she “nearly had a heart attack” and that the police officer was “vindictive”. When Ms Lester asked the officer why he didn’t put a ticket on the car or post something to her, she said he replied “I’ve chosen to deal with it in this way”. She said: “When I phoned the police, I was in a state of shock – they said they have a duty to remove your obstruction. “But when the officer turned up at my house at 1.30am, my car was parked on my drive.

He had driven past earlier that evening but did not check to see whose car it was or give me a ticket. “I was shaken and very upset – it feels like an abuse of power.” She said police are increasingly clamping down on parking violations but said the officer should have looked up her license plate to check her age to realise “the fright it would have caused her”. No ticket has been issued and Sarah has logded a complaint with Hertfordshire Constabulary and written to her MP, Oliver Dowden. More drivers are being ‘named and shamed’ on social media by police posting pictures of their parking. But Sarah said it is ‘nonsense’ and the main issue is the robberies and burglaries being reported in the area.

The Satire Paradox: Quote: “Back at the beginning, I mentioned Tina Fey’s brilliant impersonation of Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live. I love those sketches. I think Tina Fey is a comic genius.
