The police officer in charge of today's demonstration operation says,
A great deal of time, effort and thought has gone into today's events and it is reassuring to see that both demonstrations have largely passed off without serious incident. We are aware of some instances of criminal damage and a number of assaults have been reported, which will be the subject of our ongoing enquiries as we move forward from today's operation.
