Trouble at the ballot!

I have heard a rumour that in one polling station the presiding officer had a bit of trouble with a full ballot box.

He broke the seal, and put some of the ballots in another box and then sealed both.

He could have reported the problem to the returning officer, who would have considered the options, and then have called party agents to see what they would be happy with, and had the above action observed by a number of opposing and independent people. Instead of which he just went ahead and did it.

Oh dear.
