(Scroll down for video) Police were called numerous times last night, after human orange traffic cones were seen blocking traffic on major roads, police in the United Kingdom said.

London police said that the group of men blocked roads as part of a prank, but they were ordered to leave the area and stop blocking roads.

In one incident, witnesses saw five men dressed as traffic cones on Clarence Street around 4:40 a.m., standing in front of a public bus.

A witness at the scene said that the five men just stood in front of taxis and the bus, and did not let them pass as they were busy taking pictures of themselves.

In an incident report, police described the men as bizarre and very interesting. “Males dressed as traffic cones. Blocking traffic as traffic cones,” an officer responding to the scene wrote.

Police ordered the men to leave, and they were not cited.

Kingston police published a photo of the incident on Twitter, where it went viral.
