Officers join Gangnam video craze
Members of Devon and Cornwall Police showed off their dancing skills as they filmed a "Gangnam Style" video for charity.
Sergeant Gary Watts persuaded his colleagues in Falmouth and members of the public to join him in re-creating the popular music video by South Korean rapper Psy.
The finished video will go up on YouTube and will raise money for Joshua Wilson, a young boy from Lancashire who has been left with complex physical needs following surgery on a brain tumour. The money raised from the video will go towards making adaptations to his home.
Sgt Watts said he had vowed to make the video if he reached 5,000 Twitter followers by the end of 2012, little thinking it would happen.

However, the word spread and, having met his target, Sgt Watts held true to his word. The video was filmed at locations around Falmouth on Wednesday. Although the policemen and women who appeared in the video were off duty, Sgt Watts said they were granted permission to wear their uniform.
The finished video is due to be uploaded to YouTube next week and members of the public will be invited to make donations for Joshua.
"Even if we raise £100 it's brilliant," said Sgt Watts.
