The issue for us isn't whether we stop the march or not," added Chf Supt Howick.

"We have a legal obligation to facilitate protest. Providing the protest is peaceful, we will comply with their objectives.

"While some people might find the content of the protest distasteful, that's not an issue for us - it's the right of the protestors to do that. The area that is of concern is if it isn't peaceful."

His advice to members of the public thinking about going into the city centre on Saturday is: "Be aware that there may be a limited degree of disruption. However, we are not suggesting to anybody that they need to stay away from the area - we have sufficient resources available to make sure the public remain safe."

I wonder how many runways and roads they'll have to close because of them

Councillor Trimble said public safety is the council's "top priority, particularly where children and families are concerned".
He added: "Therefore, in consultation with the Mellors Group and the sponsors Deliveroo, we have decided that, as a precaution, the beach will not open as normal on Saturday and will only re-open on the day once we feel it's safe to do so.

When they were protesting in Dudley all the town was sealed of with metal barriers and all roads were closed too. Can't remember if it was EDL or BF. Everything was "locked down" (_;)

Maybe not then. I know they had a demo in Walsall a couple of years ago. That didn't end well BUT I also understand that gangs of protesters clashed with them and it was equally as bad from both sides.

If I remember correctly, the Britains first march had only 4 or 5 incidents, it was the edl one that got out of hand.

are you going to Periscope it live for us Archie?


Probably be on the news later

I really hate these marches. I understand their concern with integration with the number of immigrants we receive but what do they hope to achieve by marching through a town.

the antifacist are worst out of the two.

I love that everyone can protest, even if lots of the causes are moronic.

I'm shocked to learn there is a beach in Nottingham!

Also hope that it passes peacefully.

A beach? it's an oversized sandpit - nothing more, nothing less but we like to treat our underprivileged kids to a seaside experience because the majority of the parents haven't enough money to take them to Skeggy as weed and alcohol is too expensive.

It's a sweet idea. I can't imagine what it would be like to have never been to the beach, it must be very sad. It does look like sandpit sand though and no one can recreate looking at the sea.

Lol - don't suppose you've ever been to Skeggy? Sometimes you can be on the beach front and say "Where's the sea" Last time I went there for a day out with the Mrs and her carers we left Nottingham in glorious hot sunshine to drive 80 odd miles to Skeggy only to hit a cloudy damp rain sodden beach and the fish and chips have really gone down hill << that might of saved the day but no.

It is sand pit sand. When it's finished with it gets collected up and then mixed with grit for winter roads.
