An anti-immigration protest held in Wisbech town centre has passed "without incident", according to Cambridgeshire Police.

The force has told Heart the demo, which was held yesterday (Saturday), was peaceful and there were no issues needing police action.

Officers say around 150 people took part in the protest and no arrests were made.

One of the protest organisers, Sharon Jardine, said: "We've got no issue with anybody coming here who wants to work, who wants to work alongside us and wants to contribute to our town.

We have no problem with that.

The issue we have is when people are not prepared to do that."

Immigration Minister, Mark Harper also spoke to us and said:"British people don't mind and are very relaxed if people are coming here from abroad and are contributing and working hard - what they do mind is if they abuse the system."
