Detectives have increased patrols in a Derbyshire village to reassure people after four arrests were made there yesterday.

Officers in Derbyshire were supporting West Yorkshire Police during their investigation into a serious incident in Huddersfield.

Armed officers arrested two men near the Co-op store in Hatton, South Derbyshire.

One man, aged 34, was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder and a 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Two women, aged 37 and 27, were later arrested at an address in Hatton, also in relation to assisting an offender.

All are now in custody in West Yorkshire.

Superintendent Tracy Harrison, who was in charge of the operation, said:

"The arrests took place without incident.  No-one was injured and no members of the public were involved.

"I would like the local community to know that the arrests were not linked to any suspected activity or offences in Derbyshire.  We have increased patrols in the area to reassure the public after what was very unusual activity in the village."
