Cheese rollers in snub to authorities

According to the Beeb the Brockworth cheese rollers defied the authorities once again by holding an unofficial cheese roll down Coopers Hill in Gloucestershire.

It seems a bizarre use of police and the 'elf n safety' commissars' time to try and prevent a couple of hundred grown men and women falling down a hill in pursuit of a cheese, but they clearly don't have anything better to do there and the Gloucestershire constabulary must be so flush with cash they can afford to send 'a large police presence' on a bank holiday to try and stop it.

Surely there must be better ways to spend public money than trying (and failing) to ban fun?
