Four men arrested at Prime Minister's North Yorkshire home

Four men have been arrested at the Prime Ministers house in North Yorkshire today.

North Yorkshire Police have arrested four men on suspicion of aggravated trespass at Rishi Sunak's constituency home in Kirby Sigston, a force spokesman said. The police say the men were caught within one minute of them entering the PM's address.

The men are aged between 52 years old and 20, and are not from North Yorkshire. In a brief statement, the force said: “We have arrested four people in the grounds of the Prime Minister’s constituency home this afternoon.

“Our officers were with the four men within one minute of them entering the grounds. They were detained at around 12.40pm before being escorted off the property and arrested on suspicion of aggravated trespass.

“The men aged 52 from London, 43 from Bolton, 21 from Manchester, and 20 from Chichester, remain in police custody for questioning and inquiries are ongoing.”

Tonight, a video has been released by protest group Youth Demand showing a young man entering the Prime Minister’s property and defecating in a lake. The group said the action was a “parting gift” for the Prime Minister and the Conservative Government.

Youth Demand describes itself as a campaign calling for an arms embargo on Israel, as well as for the Government to revoke all new oil and gas licences granted since 2021.
