The man, wearing a leather bomber jacket, runs backwards, evading capture from the officers circled around him.

The cameraman laughs as he films the cocky man and comments: ‘That’s Croydon for ya.’

The man then jumps over a fence dividing the road, and jumps back over, straight into the arms of one of the officers.
