Richard West (of the New F4J) has been arrested in his home town of Ottery




Richard West (of the New F4J) has been arrested in his home town of Ottery St Mary (Devon, England UK) and held at Heavitree Road Police Station, in Exeter. We believe that this has been after Richard continually trying to get hold of medical documents relating to his son and C.A.Ms (social services) Richard secured a bid in Court and the CAMs team was told to hand the files over but continually and blatantly refused to co-operate. Even the mother of Richards son joined the request in seeing their OWN child's records!!

Last week Rich publicly made a statement to his local press, The Sidmouth Herald stating that the NHS, who are responsible for the CAMs team, have till the end of the month to comply or he would "cause massive disruption by shutting down one of the country's major public infrastructures by the end of the month" SEE HERE >>

Earlier on this evening it is believed that the CAMs team contacted Richard and he reminded them that they had till the end of the month to comply or he would carry out his threat of public protest, re-iterating that the end of the month is tomorrow.

At approx 2000pm tonight local officers attended Richards house and arrested him for making "threats to an organisation".. The house was then searched and the police seized Richard's 'Mr Incredible' costume, his partners 'Superwoman' costume, and his son unknown costume as well.. The police left items such as laptops and phones.

Details are a bit sketchy at the moment but it is believed that Richard will be taken to Rygate Police Station in Surrey.

Rich West has been a persistent activist against the lack of Fathers Rights in this country climbing Stonehenge with F4J and more recently climbing a mast near his home town to try and get a meeting with his local MP after being ignored
