Few can deny that the hypnotic tones of the bagpipes often end up sending a shiver down your spine.
But have you ever seen a car full of Cops blowing the pipes whilst beating their drum? Probably not, but you will do in about 30 seconds!
The video below of our oppos (colleagues) in Western Australia unleashing some harmonic melodies was sent into us by one of our followers.
Even if you aren’t a fan of the bag pipes / drums then this catchy number might get your foot tapping in an uncontrollable fashion.

The video has been viewed almost 300,000 times since it was first shared just over a week ago.
For anyone tempted to allow themselves to be overcome with ‘rage’ at the thought of members of the emergency services daring to have some ‘fun’ whilst at work, then these guys and girls filmed this video in their own time.
Although, it would have been interesting to see the look on the faces of any wrong’uns had these guys and girls inadvertently come across something whilst filming the video.

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
