Local police are left short-handed by an outbreak of 'flu'. Enter the dynamic trio, Connor, Williams and Phillips as trainee policemen to help out. They succeed in wrecking the running of the police station and let plenty of criminals get away, Charles Clarke take note, and in the meantime criminals can sleep safely in their beds.??????.A policeman's lot is not a happy one, tra la la??????????..

The scene where P.C. Charlie Constable (Kenneth Connor) and W.P.C. Gloria Passworthy (Joan Sims) walk along the road and JS goes up some steps as KC prclaims his love for her was filmed at the west end of  Manor Road, opposite the corner store. The steps led up to a footbridge over the railway (known locally as Jacob's Ladder). The nearest span to  Manor Road was removed to build a warehouse and there is now a footpath to the bridge. Sorry but I now live some distance away and don't have a recent photo. This is a link to Google Maps -
