A snippet spotted in Pilot Magazine and entered in Bike Magazine:

The article was entitled "In a hurry are we, sir?" ( British Police Wit).

Two members of the Lothian and Borders traffic police  were out on the 
Berwickshire moors with a radar gun recently, happily engaged in 
apprehending speeding motorists, when their equipment suddenly locked-up 
completely with an unexpected reading of well over 300 mph.  The mystery was 
explained seconds later as a low flying Harrier hurtled over their heads. 
The boys in blue, upset at the damage to their radar gun, put in a complaint 
to the RAF, but were somewhat chastened when the RAF pointed out that the 
damage might well have been more severe. The Harrier's target-seeker had 
locked on to the'enemy' radar and triggered an automatic retaliatory 
air-to-surface missile attack. Luckily(?) the Harrier was operating unarmed.
