Several police officers rushed in to the crowd and restrained a protester on the ground behind temporary fencing set up for the King’s visit.

Later the police released a statement regarding the incident and stated that a 23-year-old man was arrested on a suspicion of a public order offence following an incident on Micklegate in York and he is currently in police custody.
