If Cheshire's wondering where its police have gone, they're all at the end of Trinity Street. They're there -according to the police officer I spoke to - for the EDL march. Thought that was in Tower Hamlets - unless anyone knows different!
I've been on the bridge (trying to cross to the North side) when the EDL marched through it and the police was acting slightly silly, shouting at people "move off the bridge! now! quickly!", almost creating a panic among crowded people with children & prams. Many of the police seemed quite nervous. Not very professional, IMHO.
