The watchers are watched
Police explain how those on vigil “can be safe” – all recorded safely
Vehicle searched for WMD
On the evening of Tuesday February 15th the vigil was joined by people from as far away as Pocklington and Sheffield. Those bearing witness were heavily outnumbered by the MDPA bearing video-cameras, clipboards, “information” sheets, guns, tape measurers and a supply of stop and search forms.
The MDPA tactics are devious and underhand – after two visitors had asked if their car was parked in an acceptable location the police waited until they could cut off the two concerned and then subjected the vehicle to a full stop and search under the prevention of terrorism act.
