Police have defended a picture tweeted by a helicopter team that shows the comedian Michael McIntyre standing in a London street.
The photo, posted on the National Police Air Service’s London twitter account (@NPASLondon), was captioned: “Whilst on tasking [sic] in central London this morning we spotted a certain energetic funny man … Can you guess who?”

Michael McIntyre was snapped by a surveillance camera outside the Global Radio offices in Leicester Square at about 8am this morning.
The image provoked anger on social media, with some users expressing concern that the tweet was inappropriate. NPAS later removed the tweet.
