A number of protesters then went onto the A59 despite being told not to and were arrested. The main march then returned back to the front gates.
6 people have been arrested in total, and are all still being held at Harrogate police station.
Section 12 notice under the Public Order Act 1986
Senior Officer present (Mark Khan [Bronze?]) uses intimidation and section 12 to bring the procession round the base to a halt. He never states that he is worried about "serious disruption" only disruption. and is more concerned about safety (safety doesn't appear to be covered by section 12) than any of the serious disruption of the type that is covered in the act. And if, as is stated above, there is no history of such "seriousness" on previous walks round the base it looks like the section 12 was unjustifiable.
