Four people arrested in connection with a protest outside the former RAF Scampton base have been released on police bail.
They have conditions not to go within 200m of the site.
Our investigations into the incidents are ongoing.
Our officers have been taking action today following reports of an assault and disorder outside the main entrance of the former RAF Scampton base.
We were called at 1.11pm this afternoon (10 October), and officers were on scene in ten minutes.
Four people were detained at the scene, and remain in police custody. They will be interviewed in due course.
One, a 56-year-old man from the Yorkshire area has been arrested on suspicion of assault and aggravated trespass.
A 44-year-old man from the Grimsby area, and a 51-year-old woman from the Yorkshire area were arrested on suspicion of aggravated trespass.
Another, a 42-year-old man from the Lincoln area, was also arrested on suspicion of aggravated trespass.
Officers remained in the area for several hours to engage with those protesting who were doing so in a lawful and peaceful way, and conduct further enquiries into the incidents reported.
Full investigations are now underway, and we would encourage anyone we have not yet spoken with to come forward.
We will continue to carry out patrols throughout the evening and the coming days while protestors are present to keep them and the wider community safe.
If we receive further reports of people causing disorder this will not be tolerated, and we will step in to protect those in the area and our community.
We will continue to provide advice around safe and lawful protest while they remain at the location.
If you have any information which might be able to help our investigations into the incidents reported, you can email [email protected].
