Police and partners thank local community in Wellington

Police and partners have thanked members of the public for their understanding during a pre-planned protest in Wellington.

The protest took place in the town this afternoon, with a counter protest also taking place.

Small numbers attended with a small number also taking part in a counter protest.

Superintendent Paul Moxley said: "I'd like to personally thank people in Wellington this afternoon for their understanding and co-operation while a pre-planned protest took place. We and the Local Authority understand the impact this event will have had on businesses. A small number of people took part in the protest, with a small number also taking part in a counter-protest with both passing smoothly without any cause for concern.

"We really do appreciate the support we get from our local communities, it's not something we ever take for granted and really does help us to be able to do our job in helping keep them safe and disruption to an absolute minimum."
