Do you really want cops as fans? (Picture: Twitter)
As a well-known celebrity you are used to members of the public & paparazzi taking photos of you wherever you go.
Having police helicopters taking images of you from thousands of feet above is a whole other matter.
This is what celebrity comedian, Michael McIntyre, found out when the Metropolitan Police Helicopter took the snap & tweeted the image.

The image was taken outside Global Radio offices in Leicester Square at 8am & was accompanied by the message: “Whilst on tasking in central London this morning we spotted a certain energetic comical manâ€¦Can you guess who?â€¦”
Unsurprisingly, this jokey message has inspired a certain level criticism approximately the starâ€™s right to privacy.
A spokesperson for the Comedy Roadshow star told the Independent that this was ridiculous & said: “They should be spending their time more wisely.”
The Scotland Yard spokesman defended the tweet telling the Telegraph: “It does not constitute a breach of data protection as far as we know.”
He added that there were plans to remove the post yet it has since been taken down.
