The Occupy London movement has claimed that 20 protesters involved in a cycle demonstration yesterday were held on a bus overnight without arrest.
Under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE), a member of the public in police custody is entitled to a phone call and to talk to a lawyer. Occupy claims the group was denied these rights.
Police confirmed that more than 100 people were arrested last night but have not commented on claims that a group were held without arrest on a bus.
