No normal person would think of turning up for work armed with a rifle.

To do so would mean instant dismissal at best and a visit from the local constabulary at worst.

Yet Chelsea and England footballer, Ashley Cole, not only arrived at his club’s training ground armed with a loaded air rifle, the weapon was then somehow discharged.

The pellet hit a young man who was on a work placement – but the response has been a resounding silence from both the club and the police.

Is it any wonder some Premiership prima donnas consider themselves to be above the law?
