EMBARRASSING moment for a police officer in Somerset earlier this week.

This patrol had to summon help after their car broke down.

They managed to see the funny side after the vehicle was towed away to the repair shop by the fleet support team.

The tweet from the Weston-super-Mare officer read: "Rural patrols this evening didn't quite go to plan!

"Thankfully our lovely Fleet Suport team came to my rescue, even police cars break down!"
