PSNI Chief Constable George Hamilton does questions and answers on Twitter

By Claire Williamson

In a first for Northern Ireland, the PSNI Chief Constable has taken to Twitter for a question and answer session with the public.

The questions from social media users to George Hamilton varied from the serious to the slightly daft.

Among the first questions was: "How can you justify the closure of so many stations when the level of terrorist activity is increasing?"

He replied: "Buildings don't catch terrorists but officers on ground with community support do."

Another asked: "Are you putting speed cameras on Sesame Street?"

Showing a sense of humour in an otherwise dry Q&A, he replied: "If you tell me how to get to Sesame Street."
