A detainee in police custody in Crawley turned his dinner into a sculpture while spending time in a cell.

Inspector John Wilson said on twitter: "Whilst I can never condone the lobbing of food around cells I am able to quietly appreciate the creative talents of some of our detainees..."

The display appears to portray two people, both with polystyrene cups for heads and one even featuring legs and arms. One comment under the tweet suggested the work might be worthy of submission for The Turner Prize.
