Police officers, cars and vans descended on a Hackney hostel last night.

A witness, who would prefer to remain anonymous, saw numerous cars and vans draw up at Shuttleworth Hostel on Well Street yesterday at about 4.30pm, and multiple officers enter the site in “riot gear”.

Scotland Yard said they had been called following a disturbance and arrested a 33-year-old man on suspicion of criminal damage.
