Now there's a police warning you don't hear every day.

During the high winds earlier today Tayside Police issued a warning to people to be aware of flying trampolines!

It appears the wind was picking them up out of peoples' gardens and and sending them all over the place.

Oh, you see them all the time around here. Very common.

It must have been a quiet day at Tayside Police HQ!

As this morning was bin collection day It was flying bins I had to look out for as I went work this morning at 6:45, Oh and also my garage door as it was ripped off in the 90mph winds.

that message certainly got bounced around then.

those of us who spent our time hunched in front of tiny CRT computer monitors (remember those?) were quite familiar with flying toasters. Flying trampolines wouldn't raise an eyebrow in such circles.

Is this the link to the flying trampoline (picture 10)

The tree supported by a wheelybin seems the luckiest of the series.
Some careful work with a chainsaw and there's fuel for many a good fire.

Our trampoline has been up and down the garden quite a bit recently.
