Caravan park locked down and three arrested in 'ongoing operation'

A disturbance ensued after police attended the holiday camp, prompting the arrest of three men and an ambulance response.

Three people have been arrested at a caravan park in East Lothian in connection with a police probe.

Emergency crews including those from the Scottish Ambulance Service (SAS) rushed to Thurston Manor Leisure Park at Innerwick on Thursday morning after officers carried out an operation shortly before 8am.

A “disturbance” is understood to have taken place following the arrival of at least ten officers, leading to the arrest of the trio – aged 19, 23 and 26 respectively.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said there was no threat to local residents or other holidaymakers, but an investigation remains ongoing.

They added: “Around 7.55am on Thursday, July 6, officers attended at a holiday home part at Innerwick, near Dunbar, as part of an ongoing operation.

“A disturbance ensued and three men, aged 19, 23 and 26, were arrested.”

They added: “There was no threat to the wider public. Enquiries are ongoing and officers remain at the scene.”

A spokesperson for the SAS said it had dispatched a special operations team to the site to assist officers, but no one was hurt as a result of the incident.

Verdant Leisure, which operates the site, said it was assisting officers in their investigation, but was unable to comment further.

“The police attended Thurston Manor Leisure Park on July 6,” they confirmed.

“We are supporting the Police with their enquiries.”
