A Scottish police force has made an unusual safety plea – but quoting Take That’s hits.

Now could it be magic again – this time over partying safely?
“Do What U Like 2nite but hve Patience & Never Forget; It Only Takes a Minute b4 Everythng Changes & ruins the Greatest Day #PartySafePortree,” it tweeted on its Twitter.

The force has a reputation for amusing its followers.
The now famous previous tweet about cocaine by Sgt Bruce Crawford received nearly 4000 likes and more than 4600 re-tweets after he posted:”If you get back to your house tonight on #Skye and realise your cocaine is missing – we have it in the Police station #WeNeedAWord.”

It was later reported that a 23-year-old woman had been arrested over the ‘unclaimed missing property’ with the hashtag “we had a word.”
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland has praised the Lochaber and Skye team for their humorous use of twitter.
“We encourage individual area commands to do their own thing and raise local issues in their own way. It seems to get quite a lot of feedback. It gets the message across with humour. We do give Twitter training if needed,” she said.
