Protest due to take place in Bristol

Added on 11 July 2018 at 15:05

A peaceful protest is due to take place in Bristol city centre tomorrow (July 12) which may cause some disruption to the public. 

A number of groups plan to hold a protest in the city relating to the visit of the US President to the UK.

The protest is expected to take place from 5pm at The Fountains by the Harbourside but may directly affect the College Green, Park Street and Clifton Triangle areas and have a knock-on impact on other main routes into the city.

We’ll be working with Bristol City Council using well-rehearsed plans, which have been used for other major protests and events hosted in the area in recent years.

Insp Martin Rowland said: “We have a long and proud history of helping to facilitate peaceful protests, particularly in Bristol city centre.

“Our aim is to facilitate the protest while also balancing the needs of people who live, work and visit the city.

“We want to make people aware there may be some disruption during the evening commute and would encourage people to consider their travel plans and avoid travelling through the city centre during the times the protest is expected to take place. 

“Ongoing liaison with the respective groups taking part in the event tomorrow will continue right up until the event.”
