Dudley: Anti Mosque Protest

Around 150 Britain First campaigners marched through Dudley against plans to build a so-called 'Mega Mosque' in the town.

40 people opposed to the group met in nearby Castle Street. however attendees to special events across the town managed to outnumber those taking action.

West Midlands Police say it lasted only 70 minutes.

Chief Superintended Chris Johnson said: "While West Midlands Police has no power to ban people from exercising their democratic right to express their opinions through protest, we have been planning the policing operation for month".

Police and Crime Commissioner, David Jamieson, said: "Every day in the West Midlands, we are fortunate to celebrate our diverse and thriving community. We respect each other’s values and protect the right to live in harmony."
