Preston Police have moved to quash rumours the English Defence League will be ‘marching’ through Preston.Advertisement
The far-right group is due to demonstrate on Saturday 20 February in the city.
A Facebook group used to promote the event states “it will be a march, don’t believe that the papers are printing about a static demo.”
However, a spokesman for Preston Police said: “There isn’t a march. They will simply move from wherever the agreed must point is to the protest site.”
