Police in south west London are putting a spin on the traditional advent calender this year, releasing their own 'Badvent' version instead.

Throughout the month of December, the south west BCU will be releasing pictures and information which it hopes will help them catch criminals.

The south west BCU serves the boroughs of Richmond, Merton, Wandsworth and Kingston.

For the first day of the Badvent calender, police released a picture of two men that they hope can help them with a shoplifting  case in Twickenham.

"Seen these two about?" A Facebook post read.

"Contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or if this is you, come and speak with us."
