Officers remain in attendance at a protest at a food distribution centre on Luneburg Way in Scunthorpe. 

Assistant Chief Constable Chris Noble said: "We can confirm that four people have been arrested on suspicion of a number of offences whilst a further nine people have now been reported for summons under section 241 of the Trades Union Act.

“Whilst we recognise the right to lawful protest is a key part of any democracy, we also recognise the rights of local companies to go about their legitimate business. 

“Where offences have been committed, appropriate action will be taken, and a thorough investigation will be carried out."
