This is what happened when policeman posed with huge confiscated sword
A police officer confiscated this massive sword from a car in south London.
The weapon was discovered in Slade Green in south east London on Friday afternoon and an investigation has been launched.
Not before posting a photo online of a Metropolitan Police officer in full police uniform wearing his white bicycle helmet brandishing the huge weapon like a character from Game of Thrones to demonstrate its length.
Slade Green and North End Police force posted the photos on Twitter with the hashtags ‘knifecrime’ and ‘stopandsearch.’
The force tweeted: “Officers have recovered this sword from a vehicle this afternoon in Slade Green.
“Investigation now under way.”
But the copper was mocked by local Twitter users, who compared him to a character from Game of Thrones.
One wrote: “Never hold a sword up like that again.
“It means you are ready for battle.”
Another web user joked: “Lads, they were only filming the new Game of Thrones season.”
Even fellow Met Police officers got in on the jokes.
The Met Police Taskforce replied: “By the power of Greyskull, good job!”
