Police are investigating incidents relating to a Fenny Stratford Town Council meeting in Milton Keynes.

The opening of the investigation follows a police call out to an incident at about 7.40pm on Tuesday (06/03). Officers were called with regard to a disturbance at a Fenny Stratford Town Council meeting at the Queensway Methodist Church in Bletchley.

It was reported that a member of the public had barged into the meeting and there was a verbal altercation, which lead to the meeting being abandoned.
