(The Christian Institute)— A Christian street preacher in England has been paid £4,000 plus costs from Cumbria Police in settlement after pursuing a claim for being wrongfully arrested and detained for six hours.
The Christian Institute supported Dale Mcalpine and said the result was a positive outcome “for Christians across the country.”
Mr. Mcalpine says he hopes his case will encourage others: “As long as you are reasonable in your preaching, you should have nothing to fear from the police.”
The preacher, from Workington, Cumbria, was approached by three police officers in Kendal Town Centre in July 2018.
