A singing police officer who has been raising spirits during lockdown says the response to his videos has been “overwhelming”.

More than four million people have watched PC Tim Jones perform a song from The Rocky Horror Picture Show, while dressed in his police uniform.

He now has 118,000 social media followers around the world through his regular live shows broadcast from home.

“It is all about positivity and I have had so many nice messages,” he said.

The 47-year-old constable started a challenge to sing one song every day for a month, but it was his rendition of Sweet Transvestite from The Rocky Horror Picture Show which really took off.

“A few of my friends and colleagues were doing things so I thought I had to upgrade, so I sang in my police uniform at work.

“In 24 hours it went from 1,000 views to over a million.

“Overwhelming would be the word. I have people from Australia and South Africa tuning in to watch me sing in my dining room,” he said.

He said he had even received messages from Rocky Horror star Susan Sarandon and writer Richard O’Brien.
