The reason behind this interesting incident was that the policeman had caught the delivery man driving his vehicle without proper safety measures. He did not adhere to basic driving practices like carrying license, insurance. His tyre was also not in good shape as per the tweet. It was further alleged that he was under the influence of narcotics while going out to deliver the food.

The Thames Valley Police Road's Policing team thus had no option but to arrest the driver and seize vehicle. However, upon arresting they noticed the food package lying in the car, and they decided to take matters in their own hands. The police team actually went ahead to deliver the kebab to the customer's address which was apparently only three houses away.

The amusing anecdote got several hundreds of comments and reactions from users. Many netizens praised the heartwarming gesture by the police, others wrote in to say what the police would have typically have done. Take a look at some reactions:
