York was at the centre of national newspaper reports today over a video of an altercation filmed outside a school.

The video, shot on a phone and said to have been filmed outside Carr Infant School, was given prominent coverage in several UK news outlets.

We cannot show the video for legal reasons. The school later asked anyone who saw it on social media to report it to site moderators so it could be removed.

A spokeswoman for North Yorkshire Police said:

  • Police were called to a report of an incident on Ostman Road, York, on the morning of 19 November 2019.

    A 23-year-old woman was arrested and subsequently charged with a public order offence.

The woman is due to appear at York Magistrates’ Court next month.
