Singing Police Officer Spreads Festive Cheer At Tesco Supermarket Checkouts, Then Makes Toddler’s Day

A singing police officer brought Christmas cheer to shoppers at a Redcar supermarket.

This video shows the cheery police officer walk to the front of the check outs at Redcar’s Tesco supermarket, in West dyke Road, and start chanting the age-old festive favourite ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas’ while shoppers pay for their goods. After getting everyone in the store to sing along, the officer then walks over to three-year-old Kian, in the arms of his dad, Roy, while his sister, Rose, looks on.

Kian’s mum Becca Gleeson said the footage perfectly captures Redcar’s Christmas community spirit.

She said: “It was on Saturday at the front of the tills. He said ‘right everybody, let’s have a sing song’.

“I know he is notorious for singing. I think he was only coming in to grab his lunch.

“He has seen Kian and I think he was the only kid at the check out.”

The officer then speaks to ‘Santa Claus’ on his radio, asking if Kian is on the good list this year.

Becca said: “It was lovely. I see people putting videos on Facebook and I think how I never get stuff like that.

“It was really nice to be able to see.

“Kian loves policemen so we couldn’t have planned it better.

“He was just gobsmacked.”
