Police are now appealing for anyone who saw what happened or who has footage of the incident on their phones to come forward.

Detective Sergeant Steve Willetts, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “As this happened in the middle of the day in a busy market square, there will have certainly been people who saw this incident unfold.

“Someone may have also captured footage on their phone showing what happened, so if this is the case, it is very important that they call the police, so that we can review it.”

Anyone who has any information is asked to call the police on 101, quoting incident 377 of 16 June 2023, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
