VIDEO: Falmouth police make Gangnam Style video for charity
Members of Falmouth police showed off their dancing skills in Falmouth's Events Square today as they filmed a "Gangnam Style" video for charity.
Sergeant Gary Watts persuaded colleagues and members of the public to join him in re-creating the popular music video by South Korean singer 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 Joshua's home to meet his needs.
Sgt Watts said that he had vowed to make the Gangnam Style 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 has been filmed at locations around Falmouth today.
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.
