Arrests after fathers’ rights ‘fart gas attack’

TWO people, one of them a 41-year-old man from Epsom, have been arrested following a “fart gas attack” by fathers’ rights campaigners on trade union offices in south London.

The Real Fathers For Justice group┬áconfirmed it targeted the premises of Napo – the trade union for family court staff – claiming those that support the family laws system “stink”.

The Metropolitan Police said officers were called to Chivalry Road, Clapham, at 1pm on Friday.

A spokeswoman said: “Two arrests were made… two men, 41 and 44-years-old, were bailed to return for questioning at a later date.

“Nobody was injured,” she added.

Real Fathers For Justice spokesman Mike Kelly said: “We attacked this union because we wanted to get the message across that the biased family laws system and those that support it stink.”

He also promised more fathers’ rights protests in the future.
