Derbyshire police confirmed that an investigation into an alleged public order offence in a field in Killamarsh has now been closed.

The pair apparently only managed to leave after the mum forced her way through the gate.

While Derbyshire Constabulary were initially investigating the alleged public order offence, the force confirmed the case is now closed.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the force said: “We have spoken to the landowner in this case, who confirms he did ask a member of the public to leave his land.

"There are no independent witnesses and no CCTV covering this particular area.”
