Hundreds Expected At Rotherham EDL Protest
South Yorkshire Police have told Heart they are working with Rotherham Council to minimise disruption from an EDL protest.
More than 700 people have signed up to the event on a Facebook page.
The group's due to meet at 11am at the bottom of Bridgegate and walk up Church Street, between Rotherham Minster and Minster gardens.
The march itself starts from 1pm, with the group walking down High Street and then onto All Saints' Square via College Street.
They will remain there until about 3pm.
Rotherham Commander, Chief Superintendant Jason Harwin, said:
"South Yorkshire Police has a duty to keep people and property safe and the public can be reassured that this is our priority.
We have no legal power to ban the proposed assembly and have a duty to respect individuals? rights to protest peacefully.
The event is likely to cause some disruption for local businesses and the public with road closures taking place for public safety.
We will be looking to minimise any disruption where possible."
Police have launched an investigation after workmen found a body in a college sewer.
An 18-year-old man who has admitted "hideous'' sex crimes against seven teenage girls in Rotherham may have had other victims, police have said.
