Dee Collins, who is acting Chief Constable, took to social media to sing the praises of the part-time officers who handled hundreds of revellers.

The Specials were on duty as part of National Specials Weekend, with part-time officers around the country volunteering their services.

But there was one incident which made it on to social media.

Kirklees Rural tweeted: “Unfortunately some people don’t realise that being drunk and dropping their trousers in a @WYP_KirkRural village isn’t appropriate.

“They have been given suitable words of advice, we’re pleased to say that there is no photo of the incident.”
