Derbyshire Police ask public's views on policing of Red, White and Blue festival

The police officer who was in charge of policing the protest against the BNP's Red, White and Blue festival in August is holding a public meeting for local residents.

Chief Superintendent Garry Sherwood, Commander for Derbyshire Constabulary's 'A' Division, which covers Amber Valley, Erewash and parts of Bolsover district council areas, is holding a public meeting for the residents of Codnor and Denby.

The meeting will be held on Monday November 2 at the Denby C of E School on Church Street, Denby and will begin at 6.30pm.

Ch Supt Sherwood said: "I want people to have the opportunity to tell us what they thought about the policing of the BNP event and the protest against it.

"The Chief Constable Mick Creedon held a public meeting beforehand and we are keen to know if there are any lessons we can learn to improve they way we deal with similar matters in the future."

Anyone wishing to attend, to ask questions or to share any concerns about any future events, should contact police on 0345 123 33 33 to register.

The hall holds a maximum of 75 people so there will be a limit on the number who can attend.
