Derbyshire officers assist West Yorkshire Police to make an arrest in South Derbyshire

Posted on 29th March 2014

The county's police officers have been supporting West Yorkshire Police during their investigation into a serious incident in Huddersfield on March 11.

Yesterday afternoon (Friday March 28) armed officers arrested two men near the Co-op store in Hatton, South Derbyshire.

One man, aged 34, was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder and a 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Two women, aged 37 and 27 respectively, were later arrested at an address in Hatton, also in relation to assisting an offender.

All are now in custody in West Yorkshire.

Superintendent Tracy Harrison, who was in charge of the operation, said: "The arrests took place without incident.  No-one was injured and no members of the public were involved.

"I would like the local community to know that the arrests were not linked to any suspected activity or offences in Derbyshire.  We have increased patrols in the area to reassure the public after what was very unusual activity in the village."
