Ammon News - Officers have asked shops to beware of selling beans to children and have asked parents to be alert.

Police have released images of baked beans in a word of warning to youths, shopkeepers and parents after a new social media trend has taken hold.

So-called 'beaning' has seen teens emptying tins of beans onto doorway - forcing police to step in and ask shopkeepers to take action.

Stores are being urged not to sell 'large quantities' of baked beans to youngsters in order to put a halt to the new, bizarre TikTok trend.

New photos released by police show four empty cans discarded near a doorstep, while another shows a grey car with sauce dribbling down the driver’s window, reports Hull Live.

Officers are also asking parents to be alert. So, what exactly is this bizarre new trend?

TikTok users are posting the 'beaning' videos under the hashtag #beanbandits. The viral videos show youths smearing the breakfast food onto things like doorways, driveways and cars.

West Yorkshire Police issued an alert about the TikTok trend and Surrey Police have released pictures of incidents in their area.

PCSO Michelle Owens of West Yorkshire Police said: "If you work in a shop, please can you be aware of youths buying large quantities of cans of beans, if you have children living at home, please be mindful if you see them removing cans of beans from the family home."

Surrey Police have released images after what SurreyLive calls a 'rampage' in the village on Wonersh.

Cops say someone poured baked beans onto front doors and cars under the cover of darkness.

Surrey Police said: "Local officers have received reports of incidents in Wonersh where beans and other food has been poured onto residents front doors and cars overnight.

"The victims are understandably distressed by this unacceptable behaviour.

"If something similar has happened to you or you know anything that could assist with identifying persons responsible please let us know."
