West Midlands Police says that team work was behind a largely successful operation today in Birmingham city centre.
Due in no small part to the excellent work between police, our partner agencies and representatives of our communities. We recognise that the people of Birmingham have been both concerned and inconvenienced and we would like to thank them for their tolerance, co-operation and patience.
Police officers are going to carry on working with community groups over the next few days to make sure today's demonstrations have not damaged relationships between people of different cultures.
