Performing flips on a trampoline during a drug bust has seen a UK police officer go viral - for all the wrong reasons.

Four officers were investigating a house in Coventry, UK on Friday (local time), when the officer was caught on film clowning around in the garden, The Sun reports.

"This is what you pay your taxes for. I can't f**king believe it," the neighbour who filmed the antics can be heard saying.

West Midlands Police didn't see the funny side, telling The Sun: "This appears to fall short of our high standards."

Superintendent Jenny Skyrme confirmed to the British publication there would be a review of the incident. The video has been shared nearly 8000 times on Facebook.

Former Detective Chief Inspector Mike Neville told The Sun it was "essential for officers to have lighthearted moments", but admitted that "too often, they are seen fooling around and bringing policing into disrepute".

Earlier this month, two British police officers were criticised after they were filmed dancing with climate change protesters in London, reports The Telegraph.
