At 5.30pm this evening (3 November) a group of protesters gathered in Kings Cross station.
British Transport Police officers informed the protestors that a Section 14a prohibition order had been granted and advised them to leave.
In total, British Transport Police made five arrests for failing to comply with the notice.
Most protestors left without incident. By 7.15pm, the demonstration inside the station had ended.
A small demonstration then took place outside the station.
At about 7.45pm, BTP, working with support of the Metropolitan police, escorted a group of around fifty protesters away from the area to Euston.
Officers arrested one man near Euston station for common assault. Protestors then dispersed from the area.
Assistant Chief Constable Sean O’Callaghan said,
“I am pleased that the use of the public order legislation, which applied to the operation of the railway, worked well tonight.
While initial arrests were necessary, the rest of the protesters then complied with the prohibition order and quickly left the station.
This was a good operation where partners from BTP, Network Rail and the Metropolitan Police worked together to keep London safe and moving”.
