Darwin Police Station Evacuated Because of Fleas

Flee from the fleas! A police station has been evacuated in Darwin because a prisoner brought fleas into the jail house. The fleas spread all through the watch house and even to a police van.

Police had to wear gloves and tuck their pants into their socks to keep out the menace. They were also ordered to take a shower when they finished each shift.

But all this was in vain. After a week of scratching in agony they abandoned the station. The place has now been thoroughly fumigated.
