"Fantastic pic @piersmorgan," wrote one, while others added: "Wonderful," and: "I admire her for that! [clapping emoji]."

Others, however, debated whether the mum-of-two should have shown off her warrant number publicly, with one writing: "That’s a big NO-NO" and another responding that officers have to show their cards when asked.

"Except a special constable has no 'Police' powers out of uniform," wrote one commenter, while a handful disagreed.
