LONDON, United Kingdom: A magnifying glass highlights a passage in a British legal book stating that it is unlawful to be drunk in charge of cattle, in the Law Society's library, in London, 16 February 2006. A new exhibition at the library showcases some of its legal documents which detail currently enforcable archaic British laws that ban ordinary and bizarre activities such as flying a kite and removing sand from a beach. There are still more than 4,000 Public and General Acts, 11,000 Local Acts and 13,000 Private Acts which date from before 1801 which are still in force in the UK.
