Coronavirus: Derby police officer raps safety message

A police officer has taken to the streets with a megaphone and a rap to remind the community to stay safe during the coronavirus outbreak.

The Derbyshire officer was filmed spitting bars while patrolling Normanton Road, Derby, on Saturday night.

The force said in a statement: "Officers will use any and all options available to them to engage with the public.

"While this is an unusual way of doing this, we encourage all officers and staff to think of new ways they can best reach members of the communities we serve."

Derbyshire Police has recently come under-fire over their approach to restrictions on public movement during the lockdown.
