FOUR men are being questioned over incidents taking place in Worcestershire hospitals that caused "serious public concern."

A 31 year-old from Bromsgrove, 34 year-old from Bromsgrove, 34 year-old from Droitwich and 37 year-old from Kidderminster have been arrested on suspicion of causing a public nuisance following several incidents. 

They currently remain in police custody.

Videos allegedly filmed at Kidderminster Hospital, the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch and Worcestershire Royal Hospital previously surfaced on social media. The men featured in the videos appeared to deny the impact of coronavirus.

West Mercia Police have said the arrests were made in relation to several incidents across hospitals within Worcestershire, Birmingham, Bromsgrove town centre and a park in Bromsgrove.

The incidents are said to have taken place between December 31 2020 and January 9 2021.

On Twitter, inspector Lee Page said: "Four people arrested by @RedditchCops @BromsgroveCops @KMinsterCops @LpptSWestMercia and in custody tonight where they are being questioned over several incidents that have caused serious public concern during this national crisis."
