Kenmure Street protester acquitted in Glasgow court

A man who allegedly prevented Home Office officials from carrying out their duties on Glasgow’s Kenmure Street has been acquitted after a trial.

Kenmure Street was the site of a now-famous immigration raid on 13 May 2021, which was called off after hundreds of protesters blocked the immigration enforcement van from leaving for several hours.

Nicholas Sigsworth, 33, was charged with resisting, obstructing or hindering three officers carrying out their duties in connection with the protest, STV News reports.

The court heard that Mr Sigsworth was arrested while refusing to leave a vehicle which was blocking the road and preventing the UK border agents from leaving.

Mr Sigsworth denied the charge at Glasgow Sheriff Court and was found not guilty by Sheriff Amel Elfallah yesterday.
