Police were called to Darnall very early this morning (May 20) to reports of a man waving a bat.

A Sheffield East Local Policing Team spokesman said: “Male located running into the bushes.

“Don’t think he could see the wood for the trees as although no bat was found, he did have a small amount of cannabis on him.

“A court date awaits for the litte scoundrel. He even had the cheek to ask for his cannabis back!”

It is not known what age the man was or precisely where in Darnall it took place.
