Ministry of Defence Vs Climate supporters

Chief Inspector Chris Yates, of the Operational Support Unit (South), said:

"Each year a planning team with representatives from each force identifies and agrees a topical theme for the exercise and venue for the exercise to take place.

"This year the theme was based around climate change and the associated protest activity. The fundamental objectives of the event were to test and evaluate the interoperability of common public order tactics between forces and to test the resilience of the command structure and of individual commanders."
