A Bristol MP has shown his support for police by sporting painted nails in the House of Commons.

Darren Jones, MP for Bristol North West, drew attention to his painted nails in support of the 'Let's Nail It' campaign.

Some Avon and Somerset Police officers have tried to raise awareness about modern slavery by painting their nails.

The campaign has been criticised by some people and Mr Jones said he was concerned about the backlash against officers.

Avon and Somerset Police have encouraged people to use the #LetsNailIt hashtag to show their support for the campaign which is run by Unseen.

The charity thanked the MP for highlighting the issue.

Mr Jones said nail bars were a location where modern slavery is often exposed by police.

The Twitter account of Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens welcomed the move from Mr Jones and added the campaign has already made a difference.
