The Metropolitan Police ia appealing for the return of a Taser and four cartridges that were left on the roof of a police car, which was then driven away...

A Met firearms officer attended an early morning briefing at Norfolk Row, Lambeth. After the briefing, possibly focussed on coffee and a bacon sandwich, the copper put the Taser on the roof of the marked police car and drove off.

An hour and a half later it dawned on the unfortunate officer what had happened, by which time the Taser was no longer on the roof.

Police suspect the device fell from the roof somewhere around Norfolk Row, and certainly before the car stopped in Vauxhall Cross for petrol.

The Taser looks like a handgun, but is made of bright, yellow plastic.

Police ask anyone who spots it to call them immediately, on 0300 123 1212, but not to touch the Taser. ®
