Two arrests were made following a protest in High Wycombe yesterday.

Members from the union ACORN were reportedly demonstrating outside of Ryeview Homes on Crendon Street in High Wycombe town centre.

The group said that they were protesting after a family were made subject to an eviction notice after reportedly suffering from 'multiple hazards, including a rat infestation' in a home owned by Ryeview Homes.

In a post shared on social media, ACORN Oxford wrote: "Our members were there within their legal rights to form a 15 person support group, as outlined in government Coronavirus legislation.

"The demonstration was socially distanced, outside, and entirely peaceful.

"Amjd Choudhry, our members’ letting agent, and Ryeview Homes were too cowardly to face the family and the suffering they have caused.

"Rather than listen, they decided to call the police on the ridiculous grounds that someone tapping on the window constitutes ‘criminal damage’.

"Instead of supporting tenants standing up for their rights, the police decided to detain two of our members without reason."

Thames Valley Police have confirmed that they were called at 2.23pm yesterday to a report of a group of people protesting and attempting to gain entrance to a commercial property on Crendon Street, High Wycombe.

Officers attended and arrested a man, aged 21, on suspicion of criminal damage. He has since been released under investigation.

A woman, aged 27, was also arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and bailed.

Ryeview Homes have been approached for comment.
