TikTok Account Called ‘Stop Auditors UK’ Surfaces On Social Media

Do you know what an ‘auditor’ (not the qualified, professional kind) is or what their purpose might be? Nope, neither do I. 

Generally speaking, to be an ‘auditor’, you need to be highly qualified in your respective field; when it comes to ‘auditing’ the police, being a ‘professional bystander’ just does not cut it. 

But when you have a look at self-proclaimed ‘auditor’ accounts on social media, you will find a bizarre group of individuals who seem to enjoy walking up to police officers in a blatant attempt to try and bait them into arguing.

The self-proclaimed ‘auditor’ with then, more than likely, hope to upload the video footage to social media and get paid as a result of the adverts which are placed in the videos. 

Of course, if a police officer just ignores the auditor, identifies him/her in their own footage, or just happens to get a phone call on their mobile phone which has a Disney track as a ring tone, then then ‘auditors’ attempt to make money off the back of the video will be ruined. 

From our research, it would appear that most auditors have been arrested for various offences at some point before they became an ‘auditor’, which might explain their ‘motivation’ to go up to police officers responding to 999 calls and asking them what they are doing.

This could be one of the reasons why many so-called ‘auditors’ do not like their details being shown on social media. When the camera is turned into their faces, they tend to have a bit of a ‘wobble’. 

And that is precisely what one TikTok account has been set up to try and do; they want to shine some light on the shadowy backgrounds of some of the ‘Auditors’. 

Stop Auditors UK‘ features many different ‘auditors’ who seem to want to justify their actions as part of some bizarre ‘public service’. 

This is bizarre because most officers have body-worn cameras, which more and more police forces around the country are choosing to share with the public, to get an unbiased perspective on police work.

Some of the ‘auditors’ featured on the TikTok channel appear to like dressing up to make themselves look like police officers. Maybe they applied to join the police but got knocked back? I wonder why that could be…

Other ‘auditors’ seem to have a bone to pick with the ‘feds’ because law enforcement personnel have hampered their criminal enterprises which then motivated them to become an AuDItoR.

But they appear to try and want the general public to believe that their fundamental objective is to hold the police to account. 

But I doubt that the Independent Office for Police Conduct (the IOPC) will be recruiting any of these ‘auditors’ anytime soon. Because, after all, the IOPC employ hundreds of people on full-time salaries to do just that; hold the police to account.

So why the hell do we need ‘AuDItoRs’? 

Anyway, have a look for yourself and see what you think: ‘Stop Auditors UK

WATCH | Cop Goes Viral After Checking Hidden Vehicle Compartment ‘Hack’

Before the days of social media, if people found secret hiding places inside everyday objects, such as inside cars, then you probably would not find out about it.

But now, all it takes is for a powerful algorithm to detect a video that it thinks people will find interesting for ‘secret’ life hacks (which have been uploaded to social media) to go viral.

And once a video does go viral, then it is no longer a ‘secret’, as the video below shows.

When a police officer (officer_coppuccino) saw a video on TikTok of somebody sharing a ‘hidden’ compartment behind a light switch, the officer called ‘BS’ and so decided to check it out for himself.

After a long walk from his office to his car, the officer soon found out that he had probably been hoodwinked during numerous previous vehicle stops by people (who had something to hide) who probably already knew about the ‘secret’ compartment!

Since being uploaded to TikTok, the video has been watched nearly 26 million times!

Even by ‘viral’ standards, that is a lot of views!

Former Royal Marine Given Green Light To Rescue His 200 Cats & Dogs From Kabul

A Royal Marine veteran – who served in the elite unit for 22 years – and who has chartered a flight to get his 70 staff and 200 rescued animals out of Afghan has been given the green light to leave the country by Defence Secretary Ben Wallace. 

Paul ‘Pen’ Farthing runs the Nowzad animal shelter in Kabul and has said that he will not leave the country without his rescue centre staff and animals. 

He has even attracted the support of Ricky Gervais.

The operation to save his staff and animals has been dubbed ‘Operation Ark’. 

Farthing has spent $500,000 on chartering an aircraft that is on the ground in Kabul, and that is poised ready to remove Farthing, his staff and his animals from the Taliban-controlled country.

But Pen has faced delays owing to ‘paperwork’ issues, as the Taliban enforced deadline for people leaving the country looms ever closer. 

Speaking to Sky News yesterday (24 August), the Defence Secretary said: 

“[Farthing] could get through the gates as a British passport holder.

“He was called forward on Friday and I recommend he takes that.

“His workforce have been offered, as entitled personnel, places and they will be able to be called forward, but I can’t guarantee in this window they will be processed onto aircraft, all I can say is they qualify.

“As for the animals that he was rescuing… it is just not going to be the case that I will prioritise them over the men, women and children we see in desperate need at the gate.”

But Wallace has said that if Farthing, his animals and his staff can make it to the airport, he ‘will seek a slot for his plane’. 

Posting on Twitter, Wallace said:

“Now that Pen Farthing’s staff have been cleared to come forward under LOTR I have authorised MOD to facilitate their processing alongside all other eligible personnel at HKIA.

“At that stage, if he arrives with his animals we will seek a slot for his plane.

“If he does not have his animals with him he and his staff can board an RAF flight.

“I have been consistent all along, ensuring those most at risk are processed first and that the limiting factor has been flow THROUGH to airside NOT airplane capacity.

“No one has the right in this humanitarian crisis to jump the queue.”

Yesterday, Farthing hit back at unfounded claims he had been attempting to put his animals before people.

Pen told Sky News

“Mr Wallace, I never asked you to prioritise pets over people. At no point have I ever said that, whatsoever.

“We got a flight and we’ve said, we will wait – you’ve just got to give us this call sign so we can actually get it in play, get the airline to actually start the flight plans and then we will sit quite happily and wait.

“We’ve got an aircraft that we need to put 69 people on, it’s got capacity for 250 people.

“And in that cargo hold – it’ll be empty. I can’t park people in a cargo hold, but I can park my animals in that cargo hold.”

Now Pen faces the enormous challenge of getting his staff and rescued animals to the airport before the deadline is imposed by the Taliban.

WATCH | The Very Real Hazards Of Taser Training

If you are lucky enough (or unlucky enough, depending on which way you look at it) to work in a unit that gives you access to a taser, then, chances are, you are going to ride the volts yourself during a training or ‘familiarisation’ session.

What better way to understand the effect that a taser has on the body than being on the receiving end of the razor sharp barbs that help carry the voltage that will make all of your muscles contract?

During the training, you might experience involuntary flatulence as well as various limbs flying wildly all over the place.

But do not worry, as your colleagues who will be helping you through the process will be primed and ready to look after you as you experience tens of thousands of volts running through your body.

Or will they?

Judging by the video below, helping your oppo as they experience the effect of a taser can be just as hazardous as being on the receiving end of the taser itself!

Lad In Bootle Takes A Picture Of HEMs And Lists It For Sale On Facebook

A Bootle-based entrepreneur has tried to make a few quid by listing a HEMs helicopter for sale on Facebook Marketplace.

The multi-million-pound chopper had landed in a park when the lad took a picture of it before listing it on the social media website.

The seller – who is ‘highly rated’ on Fb Marketplace – is only asking £1,248,400 for the ‘used’ but ‘like new’ life-saving machine.

The seller points out that the helicopter has only had ‘two careful owners’ but that he decided it wasn’t for him after ‘owning it’ for a ‘couple of hours’.

This is fair enough because, let’s face it, running a helicopter is not cheap.

Although, it was listed ten weeks ago and still has not been sold. Maybe the seller needs to reduce the asking price a bit?

British Paratrooper Crashes Through Roof Of Californian Home After His Parachute Failed To Deploy Properly

A British paratrooper crashed through the roof of residential property in California after his parachute failed to deploy correctly. 

The elite trooper had just jumped out of an aircraft as part of a training exercise when he got into trouble about 10,000ft in the air. 

The aircraft carrying the paratroopers took off from Camp Roberts, a national guard based in California. 

Part of the exercise involved a HALO jump, an acronym for High Altitude Low Opening; a high-risk parachute jump used by special forces operators. 

Although the parachute did deploy, the soldier was too low to the ground to get to his landing zone by the time it had. 

Thankfully, the soldier was not seriously injured. 

A photo being shared on social media shows the moment when the paratrooper was sat on the floor of the house he had just crashed through, surrounded by debris. 

Neighbour Rose Martin told KSBY: “I was in shock. I’m like, what?”

“So I ran in to make sure he was okay and I checked on him and his eyes were open but I wasn’t sure if there were any injuries. I didn’t want anyone to move him.”

She added: “It’s a miracle in my estimation, really. I mean, who lands like that without a parachute and lives?”

A spokesperson for the MOD said: “There has been a parachuting incident involving a British soldier training alongside American allies in California.

“The soldier received minor injuries and is recovering well.”

A statement from the Atascadero police department said: 

“Investigation revealed that a parachute failed to fully deploy during manoeuvres by a group training at Camp Roberts. 

“This was the only incident involved and all others participating in the jump landed safely at the designated landing field.”

WATCH | ‘You Can Shove Your Lamborghini Up Your A*se’ – England Fans Surround Lambo Driver In London

England fans can pretty much turn any object into a song. As the video below clearly shows.

When the driver of this blue Lamborghini got caught up in some traffic whilst driving through central London, it did not take long for some England fans to swarm around the Italian-made supercar.

Initially, one fan stood in front of the sportscar, pointing to its bonnet.

At least another 20 fans quickly joined the fan as they surrounded the vehicle whilst chanting: ‘you can stick your Lamborghini up your a*se’.

After a performance that lasted around 20 seconds, the driver of the Lamborghini revved their engine, at which point the video stopped.

One social media user who commented on the video said: ‘In Miami they would’ve climbed on it, I held my breath!’

Cop Receives £20 Compensation For Being Bottled FIVE YEARS After Court Order Was Made

A police officer has finally received their £20 compensation five years after a violent suspect bottled them.

The officer shared a picture on Twitter of the date on which the courts made the compensation order; on 7th June 2016.

Courts sometimes award compensation payouts to emergency workers who have been assaulted in the line of duty.

But the officer in this instance received two slaps in the face from the judiciary; first, for the measly amount of £20 that is barely enough to buy a new torch for work.

And then a second slap around the chops due to the amount of time it took for the officer to receive the payment.

Who wants to make a bet that the amount of compensation awarded to the court was more than £20 and that it was paid over four years ago..?

WATCH | Huge Underwater Inferno In The Gulf Of Mexico

Fire cannot burn without water, right? Or at least that is what we thought until we saw this massive underwater inferno in the Gulf of Mexico.

The incident was caught on camera after a helicopter crew flew over the site earlier this month.

Whilst we know that things can burn underwater, this is the first time we have seen what appears to be a massive fireball underneath the water’s surface.

Thankfully, nobody was injured after the underwater gas pipe somehow ignited.

Once technicians had isolated the pipe, the ‘fire’ went out. But it took crews several hours to turn off the gas that was feeding the weird fireball.

WATCH | Mason Mount Gives His England Shirt To Young Fan After Semi-Final Win

A video has been shared on social media showing the moment when Mason Mount walks into the stand at Wembley after the 2-1 win over Denmark, to give his England shirt to a young England fan.

In the footage, Mount walks past a security official to get to the fan.

Worried about what the footballer will do, the security official initially tries to hold Mount back, but he points to the young girl with his shirt in his hand.

Realising what Mount is about to do, the security official steps back in order to allow Mount through.

Once Mount gives the young fan his shirt, she is overcome with emotion as tears of joy start to stream down her face.

Her dad then gives her an epic hug, patting her on the back as she continues to cry with joy.

As Mount walks away, he looks back over his shoulder and smiles after seeing the young girls reaction.

The video, uploaded to Twitter, has been viewed nearly 700k times with 19k ‘likes’.
