WEST MIDLANDS, United Kingdom — A Pc investigating a "suspicious bright light'' at a Worcestershire beauty spot was left red-faced — after the focus of his inquiries turned out to be the innocent glare of a full moon.

The unfortunate officer only realised his blunder — reported in this month's edition of Police magazine — after warning colleagues he might need back-up.
