Police have made a second arrest in connection with an anti-vaccine protest that took place in Milton Keynes on December 29th.

A 57-year-old man from Northampton was arrested by police earlier this week on suspicion of assault on emergency workers and causing a disturbance on NHS property. He remains in police custody.

The arrest is in connection with a protest that took place in Milton Keynes on Wednesday 29 December at a coronavirus testing centre in Central Milton Keynes during which signs were damaged, equipment was removed and a number of public order incidents took place.

Chief Inspector Graham Hadley, of Thames Valley Police, said, “We have made a second arrest as officers continue to investigate the protests that happened on 29 December.

“Our dedicated team are continuing to take statements and review footage that has been obtained of the protest.

“If anyone believes they have information that could assist our investigation and has not reported it to us, please do so by calling 101 or making a report online, quoting reference 43210583457.”
