WATCH: He CAN boogie! Former Cheshire police chief Sir Peter Fahy stars in hilarious dance video

The charity video is to raise cash for community charity Forever Manchester

Former Cheshire police chief Sir Peter Fahy has gone 70s-tastic in his latest dance video to promote a Greater Manchester charity.

Now chief constable of Greater Manchester Police, Mr Fahy can be seen sporting a fake moustache and spinning on his chair to 1977 hit ‘Yes Sir I Can Boogie’ by Baccara.

Two years ago, Sir Peter gained thousands of YouTube hits with his stellar performance to Gangnam Style in aid of ‘Super Josh’ – the Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity.

The latest video, featuring other GMP staff dancing in their seats, is in aid of community charity Forever Manchester.

Inspired by a Cadbury’s chocolate advert featuring the same song released in January, GMP’s video aims to raise the profile of Forever Manchester who deliver funding from national charities like Comic Relief to local charities.

Nick Massey, Forever Manchester chief executive, said: “We’re happy that the force is with us.”

Greater Manchester Police is also fundraising for Forever Manchester and asking others to donate at forevermanchester.com.

Sir Peter said: “So often we see that the best solutions to problems come from local people putting in voluntary effort in their own local areas.

“This is a great way to deal with issues such as antisocial behaviour, repeat offending, loneliness and isolation.

“This tongue-in-cheek video is just one way of raising the profile of this worthwhile charity and it’s nice to show everyone that we don’t like to take ourselves too seriously.”

Mr Fahy was chief constable of Cheshire Constabulary from 2002-2008.
