Police van rams yob as officers break up riot in Edinburgh

This is the moment a teenager appears to be ‘rammed’ by a police van after officers were called to break up a riot in an Edinburgh park. At least 30 youths wearing black clothing and balaclavas were filmed running from grassland near Moredunvale park around 6.30pm on Monday, after two police vans arrived.

 

 

 

 

A 16-year-old was arrested after colliding with a police vehicle and one witness said the group had smashed cars and set items on fire. No link has been established between the riot and the attempted murder of a 16-year-old boy outside an Aldi in Edinburgh on Sunday. Footage shot from a flat overlooking the park shows one youth leap up in the air before colliding with the van.

Officers then jump out of the vehicle and appear to arrest the youth. Police Scotland confirmed that a 16-year-old had been arrested for antisocial behaviour after he collided with a police van. He did not require medical attention.
