Concerned people had contact them to express concerns over a man who appeared to be exposing himself on a canal towpath near Avonbrook Close.

“The chase came to a swift end and the man was detained.

“What we suspect to be Class A drugs, together with cash and a small rounders bat were found.

“A 37-year-old man of no fixed abode was promptly arrested.”

In a lighter note the officer added: “Sadly, there was some damage done to the fence but not by us. We are pleased to report that our fence-hopping technique is flawless. (In Hot Fuzz terms, think Simon Pegg rather than Nick Frost.)”

They also thanked the public for reporting the incident.
