A police helicopter team praised a 'kid flossing in the beer garden' of a pub in Yorkshire after helping officers make an arrest.

A member of the NPAS Carr Gate's team spoke highly of a kid's flossing skills in the beer garden of the Malt Shovel after helping police arrest a man in Vesper Road, Leeds.

The incident involved multiple police being called to reports of a man in possession of two knives in the road yesterday (Saturday, September 1).

The man was arrested by officers on the ground.

A spokesman for NPAS Carr Gate said: "1745hrs Kirkstall, Leeds, assist in a suspect search. Areas cleared. And a round of applause to the kid in the beer garden of the Malt Shovel for top flossing!"

It was a busy day for the helicopter team yesterday, after the chopper was called out first thing in the morning to help search for a missing person in Middleton, Leeds.

The helicopter helped officers on the ground after a man in a mobility scooter who had gone missing was found stuck in a field.

A quad bike off-road ambulance was mobilised along with several police officers on bikes in order to find and rescue the man with the helicopter team's help.
