Possible Disruption in City Centre Saturday 4 February

Posted by mc234 at Jan 31, 2012 09:10 AM |

The English Defence League and Unite Against Fascism are holding public protest marches in Leicester city centre on Saturday 4th February. Both are scheduled to assemble from 11am and commence at 12.30pm.

The English Defence League protest will be on the north side of the city centre, around 3km from the University. The Unite Against Fascism protest will be from Welford Place over 1km from the University.

The city centre will be disrupted and there may be more crowds than normal and more police officers than you would normally see.

You may wish to avoid the centre of Leicester on Saturday.  We do not expect any disruption near campus which is a considerable distance from the protests and their routes. Information from the Police and City Council can be found below.
