Two Essex Police officers who played the rap classic Sound of Da Police from their marked car on a late night patrol of Chelmsford have been given "words of advice".

In what is believed to signal the end of the matter, the pair were spoken to by a senior officer after their actions were filmed by revellers out during the Easter weekend, before being posted to YouTube and Facebook.

Our online poll attracted almost 500 responses, with 462 saying the officers should not face further disciplinary action.
