POLICE rolled out a team of officers after youngsters covered a town square with toilet paper this week.

Thames Valley Police officers responded after the £70m Pioneer Square shopping centre in Bicester was targeted.

Hurling toilet paper – knowing as TP'ing or teepeeing – is a popular Halloween prank in the United States.

The force said it was quickly able to identify the culprit and found them at their home. 

They were then frog-marched back to the scene of the crime to clean up the mess.

Officers in the town tweeted: "After an officer found Pioneer Square covered in toilet roll the other evening, an identification was quickly made of one of the young offenders.

"Officers attended the child’s home and they were taken back to clean the mess up."
