“As the police were closing in, one policeman is understood to have fallen, letting out a muffled expletive. Police behind him thought he said ‘duck’ and dived to the ground, giving the gang a few extra seconds to scramble over the wall and escape”

Report in National Times 17/6/1978

I appreciate the care of the reporter in making clear what was said without actually telling us.
