A group of at least 50 protesters gathered outside The White Lion pub before marching in a protest against refugees & mass immigration in general.
The protest was organized by the North West Infidels, and attended by members of Right Wing Resistance, Combat 18, National Action, and Pie & Mash Squad. Antifa counter protesters did not seem to attend.
Large numbers of officers could be seen throughout the town while the rally took place between 1pm to 3pm.
The group could be seen wearing black t-shirts with the North West Infidels logo and some covered their faces with scarves or balaclavas.
After liaising with police, members of the group marched along the high street chanting ‘no more refugees.’
There were three arrests, though no injuries reported. One man was arrested for assaulting a police officer, one for breach of peace and another man for being drunk in charge of a vehicle. It is not yet known if those arrested were a part of the protest, or merely present in the area.
After marching unopposed to the rally point, speeches were made with no objections from the locals.
