Rachel Harvey, the office manager for Large & Gibson Solicitors was 'arrested' by police officers PC Dane Millerchip, left, and PC Dan McGarrigle at The Pyramids Portsmouth Business Expo to raise funds for The Elizabeth Foundation Picture: Malcolm Wells (160707-4966)

The event saw arrests take place all over the city with the prisoners – Rachel Harvey, from Large & Gibson Solicitors in Southsea, Julie Hughes, the chief executive from the Elizabeth Foundation, Gavin Adams, deputy store manager of Sainsbury’s in Farlington and Pompey FC mascot Nelson the Dog – taken to the cells at Gunwharf Quays.

Each prisoner needed to raise £1,000 bail to get them out, which went to the Elizabeth Foundation, a Portsmouth centre that supports preschool deaf children and their parents.

Making the arrests were PC Dan McGarrigle and PC Dane Millerchip, whose three-year-old daughter Gracie uses the centre.
