Marched to the Police Station

placeholder gif[Sergeant Nott - arresting officer]

John Lee described his arrest in his autobiography: 'Immediately after I was arrested I was marched all the way to Torquay police-station in front of a policeman. ... I was not handcuffed. I simply trudged along as if I was bent on some errand. Behind me was the sergeant [Nott]. I did not try to escape. In a sense I was quite happy'.
