NINE police officers dressed up as Victorian carol singers to raid a suspected drugs den.
They wore top hats and cloaks while holding muffs and lanterns as they sang seasonal hymns.
When an unsuspecting occupant opened the door of the house they burst in.
A class A substance, believed to be cocaine worth £400, was seized and a man and woman arrested.
A police spokesman said of the raid in Weymouth, Dorset: "The door opened when we reached the third verse of We Wish You a Merry Christmas".
