Woman attacked by private Security firm guarding North Yorkshire Fracking site

Published

on

A security guard repeatedly shouts ‘I’m going to start hitting people here’ as protestors at a fracking site in North Yorkshire begin a peaceful slow walking protest at the Fracking site in Kirby Misperton

Moments later it descends into scenes of violence as security guards use unreasonable force to move them away.

No police where on the scene when the incident occurred, however, the whole thing was captured on camera.

The woman was threatened with physical violence before being attacked at the fracking site in a video which has been leaked to Police Hour.

At 6.45am on Monday 6th November when members attempted to engage in a peaceful slow walking protest while members of the rig workers headed into the KM8 site.

The aim of the protest was to walk along the road slowly and then after delaying teams for a short period of time they would step aside and allow the workers to pass into the site.

What happened next was captured on camera, with no police within the area security members use excessive force and took the law into their own hands to move the slow walkers out of the way, going to extreme lengths to scare and intimidate the group.

Threats of violence are then made towards the group before they are physically pushed and thrown to the ground.

As soon as one woman gets back on her feet she is instantly thrown to the ground again.

Within the video, one member of the group can be seen being clearly punched in the back of the head while another member of the security team holds him down,

Michelle Easton Told Police Hour “At this time in the morning there is no police presence on the site, and members of the Next Level Security Services knew this.

“I was thrown to the ground and into the hedge and ditches more times that I could count, tress position, with their head being smashed into the tarmac as a result, we were dragged about and thrown aside again for trying to help this protector after hearing cries of ‘I can’t breathe’.

Ian Hepworth said “Heartbreaking to see. They keep going on about reasonable force but when they are on the public road they are simply members of the public. They have no special powers.”

While Karen Benton-Rose added “Outrageous abhorrent behaviour so sorry for all you that were hurt, my breath caught in my throat when I heard “I can’t breathe ” I was held face pushed into the road knee in the back a couple of weeks ago (NYP) and I cried out repeatedly ( until I couldn’t anymore ) “I can’t breathe ” it’s a horrible feeling of suffocation shame on them all”

Russell Scott said “This is assault and North Yorkshire Police should act Imagine if this was a protestor pushing, strangling, punching a security guard – they would be locked up instantly!”

While Natasha Hagan said “Correct me if I’m wrong but are NLSS employed by the fracking company to look after the grounds? They are civilians. Why are they then on a public highway assaulting protectors? This needs to be addressed sharpish not only by the SIA but the police. I don’t get where they think they can assault people like that. Disgusting. Hope all protectors are ok”

The site at Sparkhill has been operating since 1995 when it moved there from the force’s training facility at Tally Ho! where it been operating as a CID training facility since the mid 1970s. Several of the exhibits had originated from the old Forensic Science Service laboratory when it moved from Newton Street to Gooch Street.

The Sparkhill museum contains items of policing memorabilia and old records from the West Midlands Police predecessor forces of Birmingham City Police, Walsall Borough Police, Dudley Borough Police, Wolverhampton Borough Police and West Midlands Constabulary. Some records are also held of Staffordshire County Police and Worcestershire officers as parts of those forces now fall within the West Midlands Police area.

What on earth is happening in Salisbury? Two people fall seriously ill

Published

on

Emergency Services have launched a major incident after two people have fallen ill in Salisbury.

Officers have placed a cordon around Prezzo Restaurant after a man and woman were taken ill.

Police have declared a major incident. Police do not believe this is linked to Novichok.

Police received a call from the ambulance service to Prezzo restaurant, in High Street, at approximately 6.45pm. Two people, a man aged in his 40s and a woman aged in her 30s, had become unwell.

Due to recent events in the city and concerns that the pair had been exposed to an unknown substance, a highly precautionary approach was taken by all emergency services.

Both were taken to Salisbury District Hospital and were clinically assessed. We can now confirm that there is nothing to suggest that Novichok is the substance. Both people remain in hospital under observation.

The major incident status has now been stood down.

At this stage it is not yet clear if a crime has been committed and enquiries remain ongoing.

Salisbury District Hospital remains open as usual.

A cordon will remain in place around Prezzo at this time as part of ongoing routine enquiries. All other areas that were cordoned off will now be reopened.

We’d like to thank the public for their patience as a result of the impact of this incident.
