Showing impressive creativity when it comes to their green credentials, the Met are recycling a lot more than their Christmas trees. Guns and knives siezed by the force are being melted down and turned into girders to be used on the 2012 Olympic site. If only we could further the cycle and see some of those girders turned into soft drink we'd have the hardest Irn Brun around. Joking aside, hoorah for the Met's environmental policy which has also seen cooking oil from their canteens become biofuel, police horse droppings make compost and if you got some costume jewellery or a photo frame for Christmas it may well have been made of bullets.
