Metropolitan Police officers in Kensington and Chelsea are surrounded by finery but rarely does it come to visit them.

Shortly before 7am on Wednesday a peacock stood proudly reporting for duty outside Kensington Police station.

Officers tweeted a picture of their new colleague with the captions “PC Peacock reporting for duty, waiting outside #Kensingtonpolicestation”.

 

The tweet led to some debate about the sex of the peafowl and the whereabouts of its usual stomping grounds as well as the effect the new avian officer might have on colleagues.

Fowl play has not been ruled out...

That Police Station entrance looks so scruffy and in need of a coat of paint.

That's the garage entrance. The front office is only open 1000-1800. The garage would have been full of marked police vehicles as this was the start of Early Turn.

@Anonymous - Thank you for the information. Could still do with a coat of paint. Cut backs, I suppose.
