Protest location, back to normal in a few hours despite zealous traffic controls
When the protestor climbed down, some time after 1030, he was arrested. It's not clear what he was arrested for, when he will be or was released, and the police press office seem to be closed this afternoon. The Walks Action Group had no prior warning of the protest (else we would have been there with a camera, supporters and leaflets sooner!)
Although it was unplanned, it is expected that there will be more protests in the Walks over the coming months. While the local council continues to ignore overwhelming public opinion and fails to improve their plan, the historic tradition of protests about the Walks seems likely to continue.
