Incredible video shows police inspector getting ‘Footloose’ at Manchester Pride

Joseph McCormick September 3, 2015

A police inspector has taken the internet by storm as a video of her dancing to ‘Footloose’ at Manchester Pride has gone viral.

Greater Manchester Police inspector Jacqui Prest gave the impromptu performance whilst crossing the road during Saturday’s celebrations.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, she said: “The reaction to the video has been amazing, so overwhelming. I just can’t get over it.

“Just this morning I was on the phone to CBS News in New York, and I also met Leo Sayer while at the BBC – I’m sure i’ve danced to a few of his songs in the past.

“Anyone that knows me wasn’t surprised by the footage though – I dance all the time, I just love it. I always pull some moves on a night out and even have a dance while doing the housework.

“And as a gay woman I am happy to be involved with anything that helps promote the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual community. And that also shows that police officers are human beings and part of the community in Manchester.”

Thousands came out into the streets to celebrate the annual Manchester Pride parade on Saturday afternoon, led by grand marshall Sir Ian McKellen.
