LONDON, July 8 (UPI) -- Police officials in London said a group of traffic officers are being disciplined for making a "Harlem Shake" video in a parking garage.

The YouTube video depicts a motorcycle officer in a crash helmet dancing in front of a group of disinterested colleagues in the parking garage before the rest of the group suddenly joins in and dances to the flashing blue lights of a number of parked police vehicles, The Sun reported Monday.

One of the officers can be seen wearing a traffic cone on his head while he dances next to a police van.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe had the officers disciplined.

"The Metropolitan Police Service does not condone unprofessionalism in the workplace," the spokesman said. "We expect high standards from all our staff. Appropriate misconduct procedures have been taken regarding those involved."
