A Sheffield councillor has been arrested at a tree felling protest today.
Councillor Alison Teal, who represents the Green Party in the Nether Edge ward, was one of seven protesters arrested at a demonstration on Chippinghouse Road, Nether Edge.
Police officers arrested the councillor along with three other women and three men.
Sheffield Council contractors arrived on Chippinghouse Road this morning to fell trees as part of a city-wide road and pavement improvement scheme.
Councillor Teal is the partner of Simon Crump, who was one of two men arrested and later charged over a tree felling protest they took part in on Marden Road, Nether Edge, last year.
A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: "South Yorkshire Police were called to Chippinghouse Road at around 9.30am this morning by Sheffield City Council in relation to their tree felling operation.
"Seven people have been arrested on suspicion of preventing lawful work under Section 241 of the Trade Union and Relation Act 1992."
