In the clip shared on Twitter, PC Graham initially appears to look a little reluctant to show off his dance moves. But after some encouragement from an MC on a nearby stage, "dancing Dan" eventually gets into his element, much to the delight of the crowds.

The MC can even be heard saying: "He's not feds, he ain't police, you must be an undercover raver."

According to Phemmy Nice, who captured the footage of PC Graham, he was a big hit with the Carnival revellers. " He really light the ground up ... he turned it up big time," Nice told the London Evening Standard

The video has since received over 250,000 views on Facebook, but it's not the first time the police officer from Kingston has found fame thanks to his footwork.

Earlier this year, PC Graham reached the semi-finals of Britain's Got Talent. After the audition, he told the Standard he did it "in the hope that I can show a human side to the police and try to break down some barriers".
