On Saturday night, Avon and Somerset police in the UK had something of a nightmare.

One of the police department’s official accounts retweeted an illegal stream of the boxing match between Anthony Joshua and Carlos Takam. This was brought to their attention by a concerned Twitizen.

Not straight away, it would seem:

Not only was the stream itself illegal, between rounds it was showing pornography.

Although not everyone was quite so conscientious.

The police account eventually noticed what was happening and removed the link.  

“We are aware that last night a spam link, containing inappropriate content, was accidentally retweeted on one of our official A&S Police Twitter accounts,”  a department spokesperson said in a statement. 

The post was made due to “human error”, according to the statement.

We all make mistakes, retweeting porn from a police account though, that’s a biggie. Move over Ted Cruz.
