I’m told police said they’d arrest anyone that turned up as they feared violent disorder. Because we all know where that violence would have come from. Same community who rioted last time, and were let off by the courts. Giving them the message that they can riot whenever they want.
As it was, a massive police operation turned people away and escorted cars out of town. Its a pity the policing wasn’t so robust when for 20 years girls were being raped. There have been a few token arrests but they still fear being called racist so most of the attackers will never face justice. Its an utter disgrace.
Police from as far away as Cardiff were involved.
