Police have today arrested a 28-year-old man who is suspected of urinating on the PC Keith Palmer memorial.

The 28-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of outraging public decency after a man was photographed apparently urinating on the memorial dedicated to PC Keith Palmer.

The incident is believed to have taken place in the afternoon of Saturday, 13 June. 

The man is currently in custody in Essex after presenting himself at a police station. 

Speaking yesterday in response to an image circulating on social media, Commander Bas Javid said: “We are aware of a disgusting and abhorrent image circulating on social media of a man appearing to urinate on a memorial to PC Palmer. I feel for PC Palmer’s family, friends and colleagues. We have immediately launched an investigation, and will gather all the evidence available to us and take appropriate action.”
