Police Make Arrest Early This Morning

Police Information relating to an arrest in the early hours of this morning on Ashmore Park.

I know that many of you locally in Kitchen Lane and Millbank Street and were awakened by the Police dealing with an incident in the very early hours of this morning.
I have spoken with the Police and I can inform you that it related to a traffic incident which started in Staffordshire. The vehicle was eventually stopped and the driver arrested in Kitchen Lane.

I am sorry if the police activity woke you.

The Police had a number of Officers attend to conduct an area search. This incident in no way relates to the recent events that the Police were involved with regards to the stabbings, on Ashmore Park.

I hope this clarifies the situation..
