    Several businesses in Nottingham city centre said the two demonstrations affected their usual Saturday trade - with most customers choosing to stay away.

    Matt Hinton from the Brew Cavern shop in Flying Horse Walk said it was a much quieter day than normal.

    "People didn't come into town because of what was going on and we felt that was the reason for why our takings were lower than we were expecting them to be."
