MPS Bulletin 2nd Sept 2015
The British National Party (BNP) plan to demonstrate outside Lunar House, 40 Wellesley Road, Croydon on Saturday 5th September 2015. Demonstrators will meet at East Croydon Train Station at 11.45 Their intention is to march from East Croydon Train Station to Lunar House (either via Dingwall Road/Sydenham Road or Wellesley Road) where there will then be a static protest between midday and 3pm.
Approximately 50-100 demonstrators are expected to take part in the demonstration. It is also likely there will be counter protests by groups opposed to the BNP; however at this time it is not possible to anticipate those numbers.
During the demonstration there will be an increase in noise levels and footfall in and around the immediate area. Transport hubs will also be busier than usual and there may be a degree of traffic disruption whilst the march takes place.
A proportionate policing plan will be in place to deal with these events, with police liaison officers on duty throughout who will be engaging with the demonstrators.
