Joris de Bres has demonstrated yet again why he and his job should be abolished.
He is saying the crew of an inter-island ferry over-reacted when they spotted a fellow strapping strange-looking boxes to his body.
Over-reacted be buggered.
The crew quite appropriately alerted the cops and kept a close eye on the suspicious-looking character, and a full-scale alert was mounted.
This was a helluva lot less extreme than Alf’s response would have been if he had been the captain.
