As promised, here are a few more pictures of South Yorkshire Police Officers, who broke into a property in Hooton Roberts on 07 November – arriving at 22.22 and leaving at 23.50. These photographs run in logical progression, but do not include those which are less clear. Scroll down for names, ranks and numbers. They originally broke into the kitchen, moving through the house and breaking other doorlocks and frames.

To date SYP has not said what they were doing there, or admitted the great damage they caused, nor stated what they took away, and why. Items known to be missing are: a leather coat and £1000 in its pocket; various sets of keys; a range of paperwork. As is usual during burglaries, there will be other items as yet not accounted for.
The resident of the house had been violently arrested, by several police officers, when entering the Family Court building in pursuance of his lawful business of meeting his solictor and barrister to pursue a divorce.
DELIBERATE DAMAGE TO PERSON ARRESTED?
It is believed to have been already known, to SYP, that this assault took place within one week following two major eye operations, the the outcome of which, was put at severe risk by the actions of South Yorkshire Police Officers. A recently healing major shoulder operation (also knownto the SYP officers) was also set back considerably. A collapse immediately following that assault was thought to have been caused by damage to the heart wall. That extended the arrest into hospital for tests. These pictures seem to show clearly the reason for that violent arrest. So? What did they want? What did they take? What damage did they do to the property?

To this day, the only indication the resident has of the raid on his home whilst he was under arrest by SYP, is a scruffy and largely illegible piece of paper, which gives the police numbers of 8 officers who broke into his property.. and caused the large amount of damage – by invasion – to his property. The Family Court has stated that it has destroyed the cctv evidence of his arrest, which had been requested to be kept. (So much for the our Court system)
Police Sergeant Peter Longthorne – thought to be an ex-colleague of Malcolm Chiddey (retd. Ch. Insp.) – signed the form to allow this destruction. He is believed the have held the temporary position of ‘Inspector’. But is that enough, to have set such a trail of destruction?
Not sure which is which, but those police officers who are seen breaking in, are said by South Yorkshire Police to be:
PC 3963 Gaffney
DS 2622 M Johnson – Officer in Charge
DC 3055 Z Gagen
PS 3313 D Fields
PC 1177 M Baker
DC 2128 R Smith
PC 2204vP Fulley
PS 1016 D Makell
WAS THIS VIOLENCE AND BREAK-IN TO BE USED AS INTIMIDATION?
The resident had never refused entry to Police, offering to be there to assist them when they called. There was neither need to violently arrest him nor to break in, destroying and taking his property.
What was this operation about? Was it police intimidation? Was it to search for something as a private and feral force? Who was untimately responsible for the actions of SYP Officers on the night of 07 November 2017? (They – or others – also returned on the following night).
South Yorkshire Police Force needs to be fully accountable for the actions of its employees.
More information – and videos – will follow.
