Protest in Cardiff Bay planned for Wednesday

SOUTH Wales Police is aware of a planned protest being held in Cardiff Bay on Wednesday, February 28.


The protest, which is scheduled to begin at 12.30pm, is expected to attract large numbers and may also involve slow-moving traffic on routes to Cardiff Bay and across the wider South Wales road network.


The extent of any delays to other road users is currently unclear, but as a force we are monitoring this situation closely.


A policing operation will be in effect for the duration of the protest and we will be proactive in minimising disruption to the public wherever possible. There are no planned road closures but there will be controlled access to some roads around the Senedd.


Superintendent Esyr Jones said: “South Wales Police respects the right to peaceful protest and we are in discussions with the organisers to ensure that the protest takes place safely, lawfully with minimum disruption to the wider public.


“While there is an agreement to facilitate protest activity outside the Senedd, I would urge protestors not to bring tractors or other agricultural vehicles to the protest. There are concerns that they pose a risk to the safety of other road users and restrict the movement of emergency services in a busy city environment.


“We will monitor the situation across the day and motorists should check for any disruption on the road network and plan their journeys accordingly. We will advise the public of any delays or disruption throughout the course of the day.”
