7 protestors arrested for suspected criminal intent

From Devon & Cornwall Police:

Enquiries remain ongoing after seven people were arrested following a search of two vehicles in Hayle.

Officers carried out a vehicle stop on a car and a van, near Loggans Road, Hayle, at around 5pm on Thursday 10 June.

A search was carried out on the vehicles which were found to contain items including paint, smoke grenades and loud hailers.

A 30-year-old man from London, a 21-year-old woman from Wales, and a 20-year-old man from Bournemouth were arrested on suspicion of possession of an article with intent to commit criminal damage.

Two men from London aged 25 and 27, a 45-year-old woman from London and a 26-year-old woman from Epsom were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit public nuisance.

They remain in police custody at this time.

The items and the vehicles have been seized by police as part of ongoing enquiries in relation to this matter.

We continue to support the facilitation of safe and legal protest but criminal activity and public disorder will not be tolerated.
