James Scott arrested for covering face with balaclava

James Scott was arrested by Ipswich police for the heinous crime of covering his face.

Mr Scott had donned a balaclava, in order to raise awareness of the issue of Muslims wearing veils to cover their faces.

An Ipswich police spokesperson said that "When approached by officers the male refused to cooperate with them" (ie refused to accept that covering your face constitutes a criminal offence)

After being arrested, he was detained by the local police state officers at Ipswich for several hours, before he was released, and told that he was banned by Ipswich police from covering his face in public.
