Green party brand Met Police arrest ‘worried’
Green party politicians branded arrests made by police during the king’s coronation as ‘concern’.
Dozens were arrested at Saturday’s coronation, including leaders of prominent anti-monarchist groups.
Caroline Russell, chairman of the London Parliament’s Police Crime Commission, told BBC Radio 4 today’s programme:
“I found it very difficult for someone who was trying to protest and then take it seriously to understand what the rules were.
“It just seems out of the ordinary for volunteers to hand out flip flops or rape alerts to people who have drunk so much that they can’t walk in high heels. It seems strange to be caught in the safety net of the Met. How? It feels so strange.”
She added: Parties will want their questions answered. ”

Organizers hope that a day of volunteering on a special bank holiday will inspire members of the public to help their communities throughout the summer.
Buckingham Palace said the day “will encourage people to volunteer themselves and get involved in activities that are taking place to support their local communities.”
On Sunday night, the Prince of Wales delivered a moving public tribute to his father at his coronation concert, saying:
