WATCH: Bobbies on the beat in dance challenge

Scottish police officers have accepted an international challenge to show off their best dance moves.

A team from the force showed off their skills at Edinburgh Castle in response to the challenge from cops in New Zealand.

The New Zealand officers had put a 30-second clip of them doing the “running man” dance on Facebook and called on forces around the world to follow their lead as part of a recruitment drive.

Accepting the challenge, Scottish cops danced in front of a police car at the Edinburgh landmark in a video posted to their Facebook page.
