There is already a heavy police presence in Burnley this morning ahead of a planned protest by a far-right group.

Campaigners from the North West Frontline Firm are expected to hold a demonstration in the town centre later today.

Since early this morning police officers have been stationed in the town centre and on the main routes into town.

The protest is being held on the same day as a major Building Bridges celebration in St James’s Street marking successful community cohesion work.
