Woman, 104, arrested at care home by police to fulfil bucket list wish

A 104-year-old woman has ticked off another item on her bucket list after being arrested by the police.

Anne Brokenbrow, who has never fallen foul of the law, cheekily grinned as officers “detained” her inside a care home and bundled her into a waiting police car.

She had revealed her desire to be arrested as part of a charity scheme where residents write down what they want most at Stokeleigh Care Home in Bristol.

She wrote: “My wish is… to be arrested. I am 104 and I have never been on the wrong side of the law.”

Anne, who has dementia, was put in handcuffs by PC Stephen Harding and his colleague PCSO Kelly Foyle before being taken for a drive by the officers.

Nurses to help police with mental health incidents

A new team of crisis nurses has been deployed to the control room at the Lincolnshire Police headquarters to help officers deal with incidents involving mental health issues. The £60,000 pilot project is being funded by the county’s Police and Crime Commissioner Marc Jones and involves nurses from Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust supporting front-line officers. Officers on patrol across the county have said they are increasingly having to deal with cases which involve mental health and learning disabilities. The crisis nurses will be on hand six days a week to offer advice and help officers deal with situations or direct them to alternative services. PCC Marc Jones has said the pilot, which will last 12 months, will be fully evaluated and if successful a full business case will submitted for continued funding.
