demands that they've put enough can imaginel demands that they've put enough can imagine i think an organisation being more put out of shape. then we actually are. but i think some people are tired, no doubt about that. and there is an enormous amount of pressure put up we look after them as best we can, their shifts and their welfare as best we can. undoubtedly some tiredness. and we have in the short—term for the generalists, we had to move some shifts around for a while. but in general most of them are working the way they wear or in a way which is 110w way they wear or in a way which is now unaffected by the measures. some specialists, armed officers, counterterrorism officers, undoubtedly are working to an extraordinary tempo. 0ur
