Several arrests made a protesters block JCB site

Police have made several arrests, after a group held a protest outside a JCB site in Stoke-on-Trent.

Officers were called out to the World Logistics facility on Lowland Road at Tunstall this morning.

Protesters were laid across the entrance to the site, and Palestinian flags flown from nearby lampposts.

The group have told Signal that they were highlighting the use of JCB machines in Palestine. 

We have contacted JCB, but they have declined to comment.

Four people have been arrested, and officers remain at the scene to monitor the situation.
