Static immigration protest in Boston

One hundred and nine people have confirmed they will take part in Boston’s anti-immigration static protest. The protest will begin at 2pm today. It has been organised by campaigner Dean Everitt.

The decision to protest was made following the publication of a report from Boston Borough Council into the impact of population change in Boston.

In a statement, Lincolnshire Police and Boston Borough Council said: “We have been working with the protest organisers to ensure they hold a peaceful protest. This event is being policed and anyone intent on causing disruption or public disorder will be dealt with swiftly and robustly.”
