Hampshire Constabulary has revealed that no further action will be taken against a duo who threatened officers in Sandown on Saturday night (10th April).
A police presence consisting of several cars and 3 police vans was seen on Sandown Esplanade – in the vicinity of the pier – at just before midnight.
It has since emerged that the large number of officers present at the scene was in response to threats made during a routine stop and search of a Nissan Micra.
Officers stopped the vehicle on Sandown Esplanade at just after 23:30, at which point its 2 occupants refused to leave the vehicle and made threats against officers. A short time later those involved complied with the search.
Hampshire Constabulary has told Island Echo that no arrests were made and that no further action will be taken against those involved in the incident.
