Climate camp police violence reports coming through
No reports of any accidental deaths of anarchists or passing news paper vendors ....but looks like the cops are biffing people again.
Around 2.30pm Nottinghamshire Police’s Chief Inspector, Linda McCarthy, told Sky and BBC that they were delivering “proportional policing” but that police officers had been assaulted and the peaceful stage of he protest was now over.
Sky News’ reporter on the ground Darren Little reported that he’d not seen any evidence of people assaulting police. Meanwhile there were lots of activists' reports of police hitting protestors rather than arrest them – well, it’s less paperwork I suppose.
