Return of Kings event planned for Newcastle has been cancelled

The forceĀ is pleased to hear in the media this morning that the event planned by the 'Return of Kings' group in Newcastle on Saturday night has been cancelled.

The people of Newcastle made their feelings resoundingly clear that the group were not welcome here and that was a view that the force and the Police and Crime Commissioner Vera Baird wholeheartedly supported.

On Saturday evening we will still have police officers in and around Greys monument, and the city centre, and they will be doing what they do every busy Saturday night in Newcastle - making sure that people are safe and can enjoy their evening in our fantastic city.
