Police were called out to deal with a group of men dresed as traffic cones blocking traffic as part of a Halloween prank.
Officers in Kingston shared a photo of what they described as a "very interesting" callout on Twitter.
Witness Dan Theochari spotted the five men holding up traffic in Clarence Street, Kingston, at 4.40am.
He told the Evening Standard: "They were just standing in front of the taxi and the bus not letting them get past and taking pictures of themselves.
"I didn't actually see the police I was waiting for a taxi but I saw it and it made me laugh."
