Woman arrested in Burton is tested for coronavirus in Stoke-on-Trent

Three members of Staffordshire Police are staying at home as a precautionary measure after reports that a woman who had been detained in custody was unwell.

The woman, who is a non-UK national, was arrested in Burton and taken to Northern Area Custody in Stoke-on-Trent yesterday (February 19th).

Tests have taken place but health officials believe it is ‘highly unlikely’ the woman has Covid-19 (coronavirus). The results of the tests will be known later this week and in the meantime the two police constables and a PCSO are staying at home as a precautionary measure in accordance with NHS guidelines.
