Constable Nigel Wickenden, Lincolnshire Police, is the author of Room for Improvement.  According to the book description, “This autobiography takes us from 1950 when the author was born to 2007. He joined the British Army as an Aircraft Technician apprentice and served in England, Germany and Northern Ireland, also on detachments to Canada, Northern Ireland, Germany, Italy and Guernsey. He left the Army in 1980 and immediately joined Lincolnshire Police. He found a niche on their firearms team which was known as the Firearms Support Group. It was Lincolnshire's part time equivalent of the more famous US Swat. He qualified as a firearms instructor and carried out rapid intervention, rifle marksman and VIP protection duties. He was involved in a number of incidents and helped to protect many of the British Royal family, Margaret Thatcher, Enoch Powell, the US Ambassador Raymond Seitz and the President of Italy. He retired in 2002 and now works at the local grammar school as a Cover Supervisor. This book goes to show that so called ordinary people can have some extraordinary experiences.”
