Police were arrested on camera while arresting a qualified nurse trying to get her 97-year-old mother out of a nursing home for family care after nine months of isolation.
Former Coronation Street actress Leandra Ashton wept when officers arrested her 73-year-old mother, Ylenia Angeli, before putting her demented grandmother in a patrol car to be sent back to the facility.
Ylenia, an occupational health nurse, was handcuffed and taken to Hull Police Station before she was later arrested.
The family acted before the second statewide coronavirus lockdown, which will take effect from midnight.
In the first clip Leandra records the police officers who stopped in front of the family in a parking lot.
She films the scene as she says, “So let's make that very clear, my Nan – my 97 year old Nan – here, who we took out of the nursing home because we haven't seen her in nine months, is here now forcibly returned to her nursing home.
"My mother was arrested, my mother is in the back of the car."
Her mother Ylenia then lifts her wrists to show that she was handcuffed.
Leandra continues, “She's a nurse – a fully qualified nurse – who wants to take care of her own mother, and here we have an incredible time for the police to get my 97 year old grandmother back to a nursing home where she is is worsening where we haven't seen her in nine months. & # 39;
The woman pans the camera to her grandmother in the front seat and gets emotional when she says, "Nan, we love you and we will fight for you."

A second clip shows Leandra's mother trying to comfort her daughter from the back of the police car while telling her to "stay strong".
Officials say she will be taken to Hull Police Station before negotiating to bring Leandra's grandmother back to the nursing home.
Leandra, who appeared as Saskia Larson on Coronation Street in 2016, later shared the clip on social media before blowing up the police actions in a long post that read, "So our last" window visit "at the nursing home before the lockdown, according to plan go.
“When faced with irrational reactions, your actions become irrational.
“If you are repeatedly told that we are just following the rules and those rules kept you away from your loved one for about 8 or 9 months, you are questioning those rules.
"If the rules – like so many in this period of our history – claim to be in place for" protection "but still cause immeasurable damage to physical and mental health, then you are breaking the rules.

Yesterday my 73 year old mother went to the nursing home to hug my 97 year old grandma with dementia. She then turned it out quietly.
“My mother is a trained nurse and wants to take care of my Nan at home. We only have one authority over my Nan’s finances. Not for their wellbeing. Before locking, we were able to overcome this by visiting my nan regularly. Now we can't. My mother was arrested for refusing to bring my Nan back to the nursing home.
“It feels like we're living in the worst of the Kafka-like nightmare. People in masks come to take away your relative from you.
“I am on the wrong side of the law for the first time in my life.
"I tried to go through all" official channels ": I wrote countless letters to MPs, public health, the nursing home … I signed petitions, talked to social workers and, at the beginning, made a" safe "concern about the lockdown the significant deterioration of my Nan, but this was inexplicably dropped and "disappeared".
When she got sick in the nursing home and was hospitalized, we asked her not to return. However, she was released from the hospital behind our backs and without our consent.

Leandra (pictured in the soap) started a long post: "So our last" window visit "at the nursing home before the lockdown didn't go according to plan."
“If your voice feels lost in a maze of bureaucracy when you are informed by the police that you do not have your relative's relevant documents (!!), when the system is so clear, we have to stand up and reform it .
“The police were as nice as possible, they had a tough job. I thank them for doing their best to arrest my mother so we can go home together.
& # 39; The problems are with the & # 39; Guidelines & # 39; and with so much fear to prevent creative problem solving. Relatives must be given key worker status. They must be allowed into their relative's private bedroom to visit, feed, and care for their loved ones. & # 39;
Humberside Police Deputy Chief Chris Noble told MailOnline, “This is an incredibly difficult situation and we sympathize with all of the families in this position.
“We responded to a report of an attack in the nursing home who are legally responsible for the care of the woman and who are concerned about her well-being.
“As was our legal obligation, we took the lady back home and a 73-year-old woman who was originally arrested was arrested and allowed to return home with her daughter.
"We understand that this is an emotional and difficult situation for everyone involved and we will continue to support both parties as best we can."
The video comes after it was announced that nursing home visits could only be outdoors, through windows, or in pods covered in personal protective equipment during the coronavirus lockdown.
