Video Circulating Online


Members of the public may be aware of footage, currently circulating on social media, showing a local woman being forcibly removed from her property through a window on the evening of Thursday 17 August.


Officers were responding to a call from neighbours, which raised significant welfare concerns for the residents of the household due to an ongoing domestic incident involving young children.


After incidents such as these, it is standard practice for officers to carry out a welfare check on all residents in the household, especially any children who were present during the incident.


On arrival at the property, the woman continually refused to allow officers any access to conduct the necessary checks and she obstructed officers in all their attempts to enter the property.


At 1700, a local woman, 33, was arrested on suspicion of Obstructing Police.


The public are reminded that the incident is under investigation and due process will take place.


An RGP spokesman said: "Videos such as these are distressing without a full understanding of the context. As such, we hope this background puts the arrest into context. The public should be wary of commenting in a way that may affect the judicial process."
