Police curtail protests at Modi Wembley Stadium event

The main protest against Narendra Modi's UK visit was on Thursday opposite 10 Downing Street but several groups were outside Wembley Stadium this afternoon to make their protest as thousands arrived for the Modi extravaganza.

The police seemed determined to keep demonstrators out of Cameron and Modi's earshot and moved one group on despite claims that by doing so they were limiting free speech and the right to protest.

As the video shows they were moved well away where few could witness their protest. It is a little like being assured of course that you have a right to protest and to be heard - these are 'British Values'- just step into this cupboard, close the door and protest to your heart's content.
