Plea to cancel protest march

Have your say

A CANDIDATE for South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner has called on the English Defence League to cancel its planned march in Rotherham.

The far right group has organised the demonstration after claims police and child protection agencies turned a blind eye to sexual exploitation of young girls by Asian men.

Liberal Democrat candidate Robert Teal said: “I don’t agree with the EDL and don’t want them in South Yorkshire stirring up trouble. The way to deal with the recent allegations is to conduct a full independent inquiry.”
