    The group had previously been told that they faced being issued with fines and possible arrest for being involved in the gathering on the city’s College Green.

    The force has asserted it will ‘not stand by’ this Saturday and Chief Inspector Mark Runacres stressed the health risks, saying he was ‘disappointed’ the protest was still set to go ahead.
