Beijing's dancing traffic cop


A traffic officer in Beijing has been captured on video directing drivers using his own unique style of dance.

50-year-old He Changqing invented his directing technique in the 1980s but could be forced to restrict his moves.

Beijing traffic control authorities have announced that all traffic directing signs should be standardised.
