The Police Federation of England and Wales has complained about the name of a new ITV sitcom about police trainees.

It’s called Piglets.

According to acting chair Tiffany Lynch this is “highly offensive to police officers risking their lives to protect the public every day providing an emergency service.”

“It is a disgusting choice of language to use for the title of a TV programme.”

ITV replied “Piglets is a fictional new comedy about a police training academy and the title is not intended to cause any offence, it’s a comedic and endearing play on words to emphasise the innocence and youth of our young trainees.”
