Some of the police in Dewsbury town centre last Saturday to control a demonstration.
The demo seemed to be an excuse for a booze up, with the police escorting the demonstrators from their transport to a couple of pubs. There seemed to be more police than demonstrators, in fact there seemed to be more police vans than demonstrators.
