English police taunt Gunners

Police forces in England used yesterday's final day of the transfer window to get an important message across, while taunting Arsenal in the process.

Thames Valley Police and Dorset Police sent Twitter posts yesterday, warning football fans not to check their phones for updates on any deadline-day transfers if they are driving their cars.

Then came the Arsenal teasing.

Dorset Police said "you'll have twice as many points (on the driving licence) as Arsenal if we catch you doing it at the wheel". On a similar theme, Thames Valley Police said drivers will "end up with more points than Arsenal" if they get caught using their phones.

Arsenal have three points from their opening three games of the Premier League season after back-to-back losses to Stoke and Liverpool.
