  The World's Tallest Policeman said: 'There wasn't a uniform big enough at first so I had to spend 15 weeks in civvy clothes which my colleagues thought was very amusing.'

  PC Wallyn, from Coulsdon, London, is something of a celebrity with tourists who often queue up to take his picture.

  Even criminals chased by the 146kg (23st) rugby player ask for a photograph before being brought to book.

  'I come from a tall family, my older sister who is training to be a nurse is 6' 3', my mum is 5' 11' and my dad is 6' 1' so I think it's in the genes.

  'To be honest, 99 per cent of the reaction I get is positive, especially from tourists,' he said. 'When I'm near the Houses of Parliament, everyone wants a picture of me near Big Ben.
