Both marked and unmarked police cars were seen at the scene. The underpass appeared to be cordoned off on both sides, guarded by police officers.

Imran Hameed was driving during the overflight when he encountered the police officer.

He captured the political activity with police vans, cars, officers in high vis jackets and unmarked vehicles with blue flashing lights seen during the flyover on video.

Hameed said, “I was driving past Bingley Hall at 7:53 p.m., and there were about eight or nine regular police cars and undercover cars.

“The officers were scattered around.
