Gwent Police ready for any Nato summit protests

Gwent Police have said they will be ready to respond to any impromptu protests or camps that arise during the Nato summit in Newport in September.

The pledge comes as residents in the Pill area of the city hold an emergency meeting over plans for a "peace camp" on council-owned playing fields in their community.

Newport council said the No Nato Newport group had a right to protest and it was taking steps to mitigate disruption.

Meanwhile assistant chief constable Chris Armitt said police would be in place to handle any disruption linked to the summit.
