Northumbria Police is aware of a planned demonstration in Sunderland on July 15.

The below statement is in relation to the demonstration. 

Chief Superintendent Ged Noble said: "Northumbria Police is surprised to hear of the organisers decision to go ahead with the planned demonstration in Sunderland next weekend. These organisers are fully aware of the position in the legal case. The complainant has taken up her right to ask the CPS to review the evidence and the CPS will do so. Should the organisers still proceed with their plans to demonstrate, the police and partner agencies will ensure that disruption and upset to Sunderland people and businesses are kept to a minimum. It is therefore highly likely that conditions will be imposed".
