Whew! Oxford Police, keeping us all safe…
An insect enthusiast has been warned by police after releasing 1,000 crickets into his garden because he likes the noise they make.
Daniel Emlyn-Jones bought the crickets for £40 from an online shop that sells live food for reptiles, then set them free in his garden to recreate the sounds of their Mediterranean home.
Although his neighbours enjoyed the sound of the crickets, police still issued Mr Emlyn-Jones with a warning because the foreign insects could harm the local wildlife.
