This is why I'd like to go back to the Gene Hunt days, as I like to call them.
At least back then the old bill had a fighting chance against criminals. That's my opinion, anyway.
Cregan, who worked as a roofer and previously lived in Tenerife, is said to have boasted of losing an eye after being hit with a knuckle duster during a fight with police in Thailand.
Armed police then surrounded Cregan and used tear gas to floor him, they then bagged his head and handcuffed him while helicopters and emergency were on standby. One source told MM Dale Cregan was being chased in his BMW by armed police when he threw a grenade out of his car.
A short time after the incident Dale Cregan was arrested as he walked into police station in Hyde.
