Good place to recline and eat snacks: a patch of grass. Bad place to recline and eat snacks: on top of a police van.

A Manchester man learned this the hard way around 1am on Sunday, when he drunkenly clambered on top of the parked vehicle in Picadilly Garden.

An officer spotted him drinking a milkshake and M&Ms up there, and arrested him for allegedly being drunk and disorderly.

"Odd arrest early hours Sun; drunk man climbs on top of police van Piccadilly Gardens, happily tucking into his food and drink," Greater Manchester Police City Centre tweeted.

It later added: "Arrested (for being) drunk and disorderly."
