The Police MAY enter your property without a warrant if they believe a crime is being committed, has been committed or is about to be
If someone reported that a fight had been going on, and then it all went quiet, there is obviously the possibility that someone involved might have been hurt of killed
So yes they can force entry
I think you may be confusing a search warrant with right of entry
But yes, they have a right of entry
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
A search warrant is different from right of entry
Do not get confused between the two
Right of entry is getting into a property.
They have a right to do that if they suspect a crime has been, is being, or about to be committed/
However a search warrant is for example where they can search, for say drugs hidden in cupboards etc
