Penny Lancaster, 50, is seen in her police uniform as she patrols London streets on 4am shift

Penny Lancaster was seen on patrol in the early hours of Monday morning, walking the streets of London alongside fellow officers while in uniform.

The model, 50 – who has been working with the City of London police as a Special Constable since obtaining her badge in April – worked until 4am after spending the day on the 100k yacht her husband Rod Stewart bought her for her birthday.

Out on the beat with Divisional Commander Ian Miller MBE, Penny made sure to keep her energy levels up and was seen tucking into a Tesco meal deal shortly before dawn.

Looking fresh-faced without so much as a dash of make-up on, Penny was sporting a stylish pair of glasses while patrolling the capital’s streets and clutched a bottle of water in her left hand in a bid to stay hydrated.

Chatting away to her fellow officers as she stepped out of a police van, the star seemed at ease in her new role and her overnight shift appeared to be incident free.

Penny rocked a black outfit, chunky boots and a tactical vest which featured an array of pockets and handcuffs for potential arrests alongside the iconic police constable hat.

During an appearance on Good Morning Britain in June, Penny said that she hadn’t made any arrests during her duties to date, but had helped a suicidal woman, who was in ‘desperate’ need.
