When not busy devising business-building strategies for our clients, Wieden + Kennedy planning director Paul Colman is a crime fighter and 'have-a-go' hero. When a violent fracas broke out on Cheshunt Station platform Paul - on his way back from a meeting with Tesco - stepped in to assist a policeman who was getting thumped by a dodgy character.
Using his trademark combination of logical brilliance and physical intimidation, Colman subdued the miscreant, who was swiftly brought to justice. Our man was happy to help but bitterly disappointed to be advised by the police that he was not authorised to use deadly force.
W+K Planning: they are The Law.
