If you're arrested the police must:
- identify themselves as the police, especially if they are not in uniform
- tell you that you're being arrested
- tell you the crime they think you've committed
- explain why it's necessary to arrest you
- tell you that you don't need to say anything other than giving your name, address, date and place of birth and nationality
The police have powers to search you when you're arrested.
REMEMBER TO SAY NOTHING UNTIL YOU ASK AND SPEAK TO A SOLICITOR AT DUNCAN AND MCCONNELL SOLICITORS
