Codnor and Denby residents have say on BNP festival

CHIEF Constable Mick Creedon is to hold a meeting specially for residents of Codnor and Denby to hear their views on the forthcoming British National Party Red, White and Blue Festival.

The national festival is being held on Codnor Denby Lane during the weekend of August 14, 15 and 16 and police are expecting a large number of people to either attend the event or protest against it.

Officers are also consulting with the festival organisers and groups who have indicated that they will be taking part in a protest against it.

The meeting, at John Flamsteed School, Denby, will only be open to residents of the villages who will be most affected by any disruption and not members of the general public.

The meeting will start at 6.30pm on Tuesday, August 4, and anybody wishing to attend should contact police on 0345 123 33 33 to register.
