Twitter Web App : Police custody is somewhere that thankfully, most members of the public won’t have to see or experience for themselves.

We hope that you enjoyed this short snippet of behind the scenes.

Let us know if it’s something you’d like to see more of!👀

Twitter Web App : Many of the cells here are equipped with CCTV, which is monitored 24/7 to ensure safety of the detainee.

Inside each cell there’s a thin mattress, pillow, sink and toilet.

Twitter Web App : The next arrest is also on suspicion of assault. A 53-year-old man from Stoke-on-Trent has arrived in custody.
