I am informed by the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis that when Mr. Hurst was asked to produce his identity card he refused and said, "Take me to the police station." On the journey, he changed his mind, showed his identity card and satisfied the police officers as to his identity. He was not arrested, he did not enter the police station, and after he had produced his identity card one of the constables apologised for any inconvenience caused.
