Too many police clearly, they've run out of real crimes.

Watch out for the follow-up crime when someone in a white
camper van pours plaster of paris into the prints.

NORFOLK.

Did the prints show evidence of webbed feet ?.

Were there tracks of a Reliant Robin three wheeler outside ?.

I was in town today, so viewed the offending concrete. There are indeed
two or three footprints in the concrete, quite shallow.

I'd fill them in in a deliberately contrasting colour and make it a fun
feature. I was told that the builder wants £1,000 to dig the lot up and
relay it.

Actually, that sounds unkind to the builder, which I didn't mean to be.
He's done a really rather nice job of laying the concrete, and he's
obviously a perfectionist. The footprints spoil the effect he intended.

However, leaving the footprints going across it and filling them in a
contrasting colour would be quite a fun way of dealing with it, at
minimal expense.

Doubt it would last long if they are shallow.

Or if he wants it to look as originally intended, just fill them in with the same colour!

To be fair, if it was near me then I am sure my cat would have provided
the footprints:-)
