Concern in Nottingham city centre after multiple roads closed due to assaults

Shoppers raised concerns for safety in Nottingham city centre after a number of major roads were cordoned off due to assaults overnight. Officers were called to Milton Street at about 3.45am on Sunday, June 26, to reports of a man being found injured – two further men were also found after being attacked.

Their injuries are not thought to be life threatening or altering, however, police closed four roads in the city centre to carry out investigations. Milton Street, Clinton Street, Upper Parliament Street and Clumber Street were shut to the public for several hours during Sunday morning.

Nottingham resident, Robert Tomlinson, 61, described seeing the cordons as a “shock”. He doesn’t usually come into the city centre, but he was doing the shopping as his daughter was ill. He said: “What ever happens, happens, that’s modern society for you.” He added that the cordon “puts you off going in places.”

Security worker Carly Newman, 35, of Nottingham, said: “It’s a Sunday after a Saturday after payday, it’s one of those things that unfortunately spills into the morning.” Originally from London, Carly is unfazed by the cordons. She said: ”It’s refreshing having a police presence.”

After seeing the cordoned-off roads, one Nottingham resident said: “I’m sort of used to it, it’s always a stabbing or a shooting. It’s crazy, but it’s just normality now, unfortunately.”

When asked if police cordons were something he was used to seeing, NHS worker Jordan Avramidis, 31, of Nottingham, said: “In the city centre yeah. Usually, I think that someone got stabbed or something.”

People were urged to avoid the areas while investigations were ongoing. Several bus services were also affected by the incidents.

Police are urging anyone who witnessed the incidents or has information to contact them.

Chief Inspector Paul Hennessy, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “A police cordon is currently in place across several neighbouring streets in Nottingham city centre.

“The scene is expected to remain in place for several hours, so we’d recommend that people avoid trying to travel through this area for the time being. We appreciate the public’s ongoing patience while we investigate this serious incident.”

“This incident is understood to have taken place in a particularly busy part of the city centre, so we’d ask anyone who witnessed what happened or has any information that could assist our enquiries to get in touch with us straight away.” Anyone with information should contact the police on 101, quoting incident 125 of 26 June 2022, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
