A POLICE officer face-planted into the mud while recovering a motorbike in a Worcestershire town.  

The Droitwich SNT officer went above and beyond to recover a motorbike and give it back to its owner.

Though the town had missed the worst of Storm Ciaran the wet weather had left the ground wet and muddy on Thursday (November 2).

A spokesperson for Droitwich SNT said: "One motorbike recovered and given back to the owner.

"Hard work completed by us all.

"Only face-planted once in the muddy terrain.

"Wellies would have helped."
