Hundreds of fans took part in an anti-Oyston protest today before Blackpool's first home game of the season against Portsmouth today.

The protest was organised by Blackpool Supporters' Trust and was backed by many organisations locally.

Protesters vented their anger with a number of anti-Oyston chants as well as holding a number of banners and flags.

The action remained peaceful although police were temporarily drafted in on horseback to calm down protesters who had attempted to charge the security fencing.
