Thanks all for the fab advice.
I've sent for the police check already but the processing times might mean I need to lodge the visa application before I receive it through. I've just put a note on the application explaining I am waiting confirmation regarding the details and I shall forward asap. Do you think this will be ok?
I shall get hubby to write a letter of explanation. It makes sense what demewoods explained as regards breach of peace, a friend in my hubbys company was assaulted on a night out and things went a bit mad and everyone was arrested.
