Main article content
Five people have been charged with public order offences following a demonstration at London Waterloo Station on Saturday, 18 November.
Police obtained consent to enforce a Section 14a order under the Public Order Act 1986 at London Waterloo Station after being made aware of a planned demonstration due to take place inside. The order was sought due to the significant disruption the demonstration could have caused to the rail network and the safety of the public.
At approximately 4pm on Saturday 18 November a large crowd of protestors started to gather inside the station. Protest liaison officers were on scene informing those in attendance of the prohibition order in place.
Five people were subsequently arrested for breaching the prohibition order and have each been charged with two public order offences under S14b and S14c of the Public Order Act 1986 (as amended in 2022):
Pia Lu Bastide, 29 years old of Drayton Road, Leytonstone
Paul Sheeky, 48 years old of Tynedale Avenue, Crewe Cheshire
Callum Goode, 24 years old of Compton Street, Ashbourne, Derbyshire
Abigail Percy-Ratcliff, 24 years old of Drayton Road, Leytonstone
Fraser Peter Graham, 27 years old of Windmill Close, Canterbury
All five have been released with conditions not to enter Waterloo, Charing Cross, Kings Cross, London Bridge, Euston, Liverpool Street, Marylebone, Paddington, Victoria and St Pancras railway stations. They are due to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court on Wednesday, 6 December 2023.
