Police began arresting dozens of people on suspicion of violent disorder at The Granby pub in Nuneaton town centre Saturday afternoon.
Police officers responded to reports of disorder at a number of public houses in the town, and were deployed in full protective equipment for their own safety. PSUs (police support units) from three forces were all deployed and were successful in containing the disorder and protecting the safety and well-being of the general public.
I am extremely grateful to our regional colleagues from West Mercia, West Midlands and British Transport Police for their support in this operation - it has been a particularly challenging day. It was important to take a positive approach from the start of the operation and as a result of that, a significant number of people have been arrested for serious offences and will now be processed.
