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”

Police Hour has contacted NLSS Police for comment.

We want to help you but we know you don’t like us being involved

Published

on

We know you follow this account and want you to see this, We’ve told you previously that we think you are at risk of domestic abuse from your partner. We know you follow this account and we want you to see this.

Lochaber & Skye Police have penned an emotional letter addressed to ‘a young woman in Skye”.

The official Police Scotland account won the best tweeting police account at the UK-wide Police Tweet Awards in 2016 and could just take the 2017 title as next week.

They went on to say “We want to help you and are doing lots with other agencies to try and keep you safe.

“You might not see us, you might not even like us being involved but we are always thinking about how we can help you.”

“Your family and friends have told you they think you are in danger they support you and want you to be safe”.

“We think he’s probably told you, “it won’t happen again”, “I’m sorry”, “I’ll change”, he’s maybe even told you that it’s your fault – IT’S NOT.”

“The violence, threats, degrading comments and controlling behaviour are not the life you need to lead, it can be better.”

“You are not trapped and you are not alone, we can help you get out, your family and friends can help you get out and Scot Women’s Aid can help you get out.

Call us, come to the Police Station, phone someone, speak to local Women’s Aid worker on 01478613365 or 08000271234.”

“There is no excuse for domestic abuse, help is out there.”

Lochaber & Skye Police then went on to thank everyone for the positive response to the domestic abuse appeal.

They told everyone that the meaning behind it was to “reach-out to anyone who may be at risk”.

Hopefully, by sharing this another young lady, lady or even young man or man could be helped from harm.

Officers searching for missing teenager Gaia Pope have discovered the body of a woman near Swanage.

The discovery was made at around 3pm today, Saturday 18 November 2017, by specialist search teams near the coastal path and the field where items of her clothing were located on Thursday 16 November.

Detective Superintendent Paul Kessell, of Dorset Police’s Major Crime Investigation Team, said: “Although the body has yet to be formally identified, we are confident that we have found Gaia.

Her family have been informed and are being supported by specially-trained officers. Our thoughts remain with all of her family and friends at this very traumatic time. They have requested privacy and that we make no further media releases at this point.

“The coroner has been notified and further forensic examination will continue. This will guide the investigation in respect of the circumstances of the death which at this time remains unexplained.

“I would like to thank the community for their support and understanding while this large-scale investigation continues and their efforts in looking for Gaia.

“We have received a huge amount of support from the public who have contacted us with possible sightings of Gaia and items of found clothing. I can confirm that we have recovered all the clothing we believe Gaia was wearing when she disappeared and, with thanks, we no longer require the public to assist with searches.”

Extensive searches have been led by Dorset Police. We have been extensively supported by specialist officers and teams, Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue, the coastguard, national search advisors, the NPAS helicopter, Dorset Search & Rescue, Wessex 4×4 and the Search & Rescue Dogs Association. Coordinated local volunteers have also assisted in liaison with the police search operation. We would like to thank our partner agencies and volunteers for their support which has led to today’s developments.

Two men aged 19 and 49 and a 71-year-old woman, all from Swanage and known to Gaia, were arrested on suspicion of murder earlier this week and have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk, via email [email protected] or by calling 101, quoting incident number 18:128. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
