Police working to ‘safely’ end Shenstone protest

Police say they are working to “safely” end a protest in Shenstone.

Campaigners have targeted the UAV Engines factory which they say manufactures parts for drones used by Israel.

It is the second time they have blockaded the site on Lynn Lane.

Ch Insp Steve Smith from Staffordshire Police said “Our role in this incident is to facilitate peaceful protest and minimise the impact on others, ensuring the safety of protestors, emergency teams and the wider community.

“Lynn Lane in remains closed to the general public. There is a diversion in place to allow business traffic to access nearby companies and so residents can access their homes.

“We’re working to keep disruption to the community to a minimum and would like to thank those affected for their patience and cooperation.

“We have a number of specialist officers in attendance, including police protest liaison officers, who are working to resolve the incident safely.”
