Ross Kemp on Rotherham – is this why the TV star is in town?
SYP special constables O’Halloran and Dobson pose with TV star Ross Kemp

TV hard-man Ross Kemp has been spotted in Rotherham wearing a stab vest.

Two South Yorkshire Police officers unearthed more than they bargained for when they attended a call at McDonalds in Rotherham.

The special constables were called to the restaurant to deal with a group of unruly youths and bumped into the former Eastenders actor who played Grant Mitchell.

Kemp, who has gone on to become a BAFTA-award winning investigative journalist, posed for a selfie with the coppers.

The TV star, known for his Ross Kemp on Gangs and Ross Kemp Behind Bars series, has been filming with firearms support units as part of a project involving a number of UK police forces.

He has recently been seen filming with Northumbria and West Midlands Police also wearing the body armour - but his management refused to reveal anything more about the project.
