A man has been arrested after allegedly 'defecating in a lake' at Rishi Sunak's home.

Police say they arrested four men 'within one minute' of them entering the grounds of the Prime Minister's home in Kirby Sigston, near Richmond, North Yorkshire, on Tuesday afternoon. Two of the men are from Greater Manchester, they said.

Four men were detained at around 12.40pm before being escorted off the property and arrested on suspicion of aggravated trespass.

The men included one 52-year-old from London, one 43-year-old from Bolton, one 21-year-old from Manchester, and one 20-year-old from Chichester. They remain in police custody and inquiries are ongoing.

Following their arrests, 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 21-year-old man from Manchester left 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.
