Officer Donald Haney is Knottwood born and bred. Raised by his maternal grandmother, he very soon graduated at the top of his class from London Police Academy and was awarded a prestigious position in the Bestchester Metropolitan Criminal Investigation Division. However, after six years and several well-deserved promotions, he eagerly gave it all up when a position as village policeman became available in Knottwood. "It's the best village in the Universe," he enthuses. "And a wonderful place in which to bring up Alan, Rose, Teresa - and my wife Cheryl!"
