Arrests in Newport
Posted on Thursday 21st September 2017
Councillor Debbie Wilcox, Leader of Newport City Council, said: "I understand that residents might be concerned following the events in Newport on Wednesday.
"While it is not appropriate to comment on the ongoing investigation by the Metropolitan Police, or the individuals who have been arrested, we are closely working with Gwent Police and other partners to reassure and support our communities.
"I would urge members of the public to report any suspicious activity to the police but also to be vigilant about hate crime and abuse and report any incidents."
